At Moreland we are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of our pupils, their families and our staff. We know that everyone experiences life changes and challenges that can make us vulnerable and at times, anyone may need additional emotional support. We take the view that positive mental health is everybody’s business and that we all have a role to play.
At Moreland Primary School and Children’s Centre we aim to:
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 well-being groups, nurture sessions or referral to wider professionals
Lead staff members:
Sue Roberts - Assistant Head Inclusion
Dom Ebbasi - Pastoral Support Officer
Karen Hough - Pastoral Support Lead TA
Should you need any help or advice regarding issues around mental health and well-being please do not hesitate to contact the school.
We now have a new ‘Health and Wellbeing’ drop in clinic that will be held several times per year at Moreland and will be run by the School Nursing Service. It is a confidential service and everyone is welcome to come along and make use of it.
Should you wish to discuss any health and wellbeing needs for your family such as oral health, managing minor ailments, medical conditions, bedwetting/soiling, diet and nutrition, personal hygiene and body changes, please come to the school office to collect a referral form, fill it in and return to the school. All forms will be stored confidentially and handed to the school nurse so that she can schedule appointments.
The sessions will be held on a first come, first served basis from 9am to 12pm and depending on how many parents want appointments.
The sessions are on the following dates:
We hope you can make use of this fantastic ‘one-stop’ service on offer to the school.
