Pupil Wellbeing

As adults, we know that when we are feeling worried, upset or sad we can find it hard to concentrate at work and at home.

At Brough Primary School we work hard to support all aspects of your child’s development and wellbeing, including their mental health and wellbeing.

We have two trained ELSAs at our school (Emotional Literacy Support Assistants) who deliver packages of support to children who need additional help. We also have highly skilled staff, both teachers and teaching assistants, who are trained to look out for signs that a child might be struggling and can offer support and help.

If your child is struggling, we will work with them, and the whole family, to find the right support. Where additional support is needed from outside school, we can help to access this to make sure your child receives the help they need.

We want every child to have a happy and joyful childhood and we work hard to provide a nurturing, caring and happy school where your child can learn, grow, feel safe and be themselves.

If your child is struggling, check out some of the websites and resources listed below or contact the school on 01482 667352 and ask to speak to Mrs Rozenbroek (SENCO) or Mrs Shepherdson (Headteacher).
