Wellbeing

At Greenholm, we recognize that the quality of provision is completely dependent on the emotional health and wellbeing of all members of the school community. We are committed to supporting the development of wellbeing and emotional health for all our families. We know that everyone experiences life changes that can make us feel vulnerable and lost at times, therefore we appreciate that anyone may need emotional support. Due to this, we have compiled a list of services and support available to us all.


 

We offer different levels of support:

Universal Support - To meet the needs of all our pupils through our overall ethos and our wider curriculum. For instance, developing resilience for all.

Additional Support - for those who may have short term needs and those who may have been made vulnerable by life experiences such as bereavement.  

Targeted Support - for pupils who need more differentiated support and resources or specific targeted interventions such as wellbeing groups or personal mentors.
