Trauma Informed School
At St. James’ we are very fortunate to have a fully trained Trauma Informed Practitioner as part of our team. A Trauma Informed approach focusses on the mental wellbeing of the whole school but can be delivered on an individual or small group basis. Sessions are excellent at supporting children to improve their mental and emotional wellbeing, self-esteem and confidence in themselves through fun and creative activities. It is a well-known and effective strategy with further information available on their website; https://www.traumainformedschools.co.uk .
This intervention is delivered once a week, for approximately 20 minutes with strategies shared with class teachers to create a holistic approach to support the social, emotional and mental health of the child.
