The wellbeing of our children is at the heart of all we do.
Care for our pupils is embedded in our school culture.
We take time to get to know our children.
Our class teachers are usually the first port of call for worries and concerns, and in most cases, they are best placed to offer advice and support.
We also believe a happy, health school community needs to promote and support the wellbeing of everyone – its pupils, staff and parents.
This is why we are working with the Schools Counselling Partnership. The Schools Counselling Partnership (SCP) offers a whole-school approach to emotional health and wellbeing; it specialises in providing therapeutic counselling services supporting children, young people, schools and families.
SCP hold weekly drop-in sessions for pupils, staff and parents. One-to-one sessions are also provided for pupils who need extra support. Mental health is an increasingly complex area and having professional counsellors available is a valuable resource for the school.
Pastoral care is to the fore and emotional issues tend to be picked up early

The best way to see the school in action is to book onto an open morning. These events last approximately an hour – you will have an opportunity to meet the Head and have a tour of the school led by the Year Six pupils. We look forward to welcoming you to Maple Walk soon.
