“We are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of our pupils. Since 2019, we have been working with the charity MIND to offer mental health support for our children in a range of different ways.
The project, delivered in partnership with both Central and West London Clinical Commissioning Groups and the Charity MIND, has seen Educational Mental Health Practitioners trained and placed in schools.
We feel very fortunate to have a wonderful EMHP called Michelle in our school. Michelle has supported across the school by running parent workshops, taking children for group work, supporting staff, running whole-class sessions and much more. We are supported by St Vincent’s Family Project who will offer in-school support one day each week. Additionally, we are really pleased to have signed up for a two-year programme with West London Zone.
West London Zone help children and young people build the relationships and skills they need to get on track socially, emotionally and academically to thrive in adulthood. They do this by building trusted relationships, providing specialist support and joining up each child’s support system, including families, schools and local organisations, to deliver a personalised 2-year support plan for each child. In addition to our specialist offering, we also ensure that all staff are trained and are able to support your children on a day-to-day basis.”
At our academy, we believe in creating inclusive environments that aim to meet the needs of all students.
We want to ensure that our Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) provision offers appropriate support for those facing barriers to their learning.
We provide support within all four broad areas of SEND:
- cognition and learning
- communication and interaction
- sensory and physical
- social, emotional and mental health
Our school SENDCO leads on the provision for students with SEND, and Gary Aubin oversees provision for students with SEND across Future Academies, to ensure that it is of the highest standards.
