Wellbeing & Emotional Development

Children's Social & Emotional Development at Egloskerry

We have lots of programmes or interventions in school that we use to help children who are struggling with curriculum areas such as reading, writing or maths. Emotion coaching and social and emotional work supports improvements in their confidence, their friendships and their behaviour as well as their interest in learning at school.

There are all sorts of unavoidable things that can happen in family life that can affect and sometimes slow down a child’s readiness to learn. These might include bereavement, moving to live in a new place, family illness, separation, a frightening accident, or sometimes a child might have an anxiety about something that to us seems small but to the child seems very big. Social and emotional support gives us lots of strategies for helping a child through these difficulties and traumas.

Mental Health Support Team (partnered with NHS)

We are proud to be a part of the new NHS programme, the Mental Health Support Team (MHST). MHSTs are intended to provide early intervention on some mental health and emotional wellbeing issues, such as mild to moderate anxiety, as well as helping staff within a school or college setting to provide a ‘whole school approach’ to mental health and wellbeing. The team work closely with our school staff to act as a link with local children and young people’s mental health services.
