Wellbeing & Support
We believe that children who are being supported with their wellbeing are more able to learn and to become fulfilled, confident adults.
Many children have crises at some stage in their lives which make them more vulnerable to issues with mental health, anxiety and a lack of self-confidence. We work with parents where possible to support children through these difficult patches in their lives. Some of the children facing difficulties benefit from small intervention groups to help build their confidence.
Staff at Langmoor are happy to meet with parents to talk about their child’s wellbeing and to look for ways in which the school may be able to offer support. If this is something you’d like to do, please make an appointment with your child’s class teacher.
We are currently able to support with Mentors, Bereavement counsellors, and an ELSA (Emotional Support Literacy Assistant). The school also has access to a professional Counsellor and can ask for support from both Birkett House Special School and Oakfield Short Stay School.
We also have a Mental Health First Aider.
