Hello, My name is Sophie Jarrett, my role in school is not only to help with the wellbeing and mental health of your child but also to provide you with support, information and advice if you're experiencing difficulty within the family. I can help support you with worries which are impacting on you and your family which could include worries about your child's behaviour, wellbeing or education. Alternatively, there may be difficulties in the family which could be affecting you and your child which you want to talk about. I am here to listen in a safe setting and help signpost you to early help and advice when necessary. Support and advice is confidential although concerns relating to the safeguarding of children will always be dealt with in accordance with the school's Safeguardiing and Child Protection Policy.
I can be contacted via email on firstname.lastname@example.org. I may not have all the answers but we can work together to find a positive outcome for both you and your family.
At Cirencester primary school we have a quiet, safe environment within School where children who need extra support outside the classroom can come if they require a 1-2-1 chat or just somewhere to re-gather their thoughts.
Some Children attend regular sessions in the nurture room for specific reason such as;
How will having nurture time help my child?
It will boost confidence and self-esteem, providing children with the extra help can improve their social skills and independence. Some children need extra support in understanding their emotions and the strategies that are required when dealing with certain situations.
Also, It's important for a child to feel safe within school, and have a person that they trust if they need to talk to someone outside of home.
