School Service

Our School Service aims to remove barriers to learning and participation, nurturing the development of children and their families through enabling and empowering them to develop new skills and knowledge.

The support we provide is tailored to the needs of each individual, providing a bespoke package which can address a range of areas, including behaviour, supporting bereavement, emotional wellbeing, anxiety and confidence.

At this time of great financial hardship for many, we recognise that our schools will witness daily the impact of poverty on pupils.
