How do we support pupils with SEN to improve their emotional and social development?

St Martin’s School is a place where children thrive socially, emotionally and academically. We are an inclusive school; we welcome and celebrate diversity. All staff believe that children having high self-esteem is crucial to a child’s well-being. We have a caring, understanding team looking after our children who feel safe, happy and valued as individuals.

• The class teacher has overall responsibility for the pastoral, medical and social care of children in their class, therefore this would be the parents’ first point of contact. If further support is required, the class teacher liaises with the SENDCo for further advice and support. This may involve working alongside outside agencies for example: Health and Social Services, CFACs and Educational Psychologists.
• The school also has Learning Mentor (Miss Malkin) who works alongside both individual pupils and groups of pupils supporting them with any emotional and behavioural concerns they may have. All children that work with her will be nurtured in accordance with their individual needs. There will always be children and young people in schools facing life challenges that detract  from their ability to engage with learning, and some will require greater support to increase their emotional literacy than others.
• We also have a Family Support Worker, Mrs Linda Ryan. Her role involves delivering parenting support  , along with delivering various workshops on a range of topics. She works as the home/school link and will endeavor to support families with advice, referrals to agencies when needed and assist in ways that will help students and their families to achieve positive outcomes.
• Our school is a safe place for children to attend. It has a caring ethos and prioritises the safeguarding of all children at all times. The safety and safeguarding of our children is of utmost importance. Please refer to our Frays Child Protection Policy and Anti-Bullying Policy for more information.
