Health and Wellbeing

Dear Parents and Carers,

In our quest to ensure the well-being of the whole school community, we wanted to make you aware of additional support programs and resources that we have available for parents of pupils within our school.

 

Merton’s Education Wellbeing Service (NHS In-Schools Team) is one source of support for parents of children who are experiencing heightened anxiety or who are experiencing common behavioural difficulties. They offer individual evidence-based programs and early, preventative support with friendly and accessible practitioners online, over the phone or face-to-face.

You can find out more and self-refer using the attached application form, now or in the future.

 

We also recommend the NHS in Schools youtube channel for recorded webinars on common difficulties and challenges including supporting transitions, school anxiety and sleep difficulties: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrRKV84lb8Jr69Z7ZhjSjCg/videos or search ‘Children and Young People’s Wellbeing Service’ on YouTube

School are also working with Off the Record, an established charity that has been providing free, professional support to young people in Croydon, Sutton, and most recently Merton over the last 25 years. See link below.
