I am Christine Sleight, your new Wellbeing and Behaviour Mentor.
My role is to work alongside teaching and non-teaching staff to support children who may be struggling to engage with learning. This can often be reflected in their behaviour and emotional health, both at home and at school and can also impact upon their interaction with their peers.
I plan to offer 1:1 and small group work with the children to help improve both their wellbeing and behaviour depending on the needs that they have.
Another of my roles will be to be available to listen to parents to identify worries and problems that you may have about your children. Parents often recognise signs of unhappiness or worry before it becomes apparent in school and we can work together to support the children.
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Please find below a number of useful links to access wellbeing/mental health support. We have included information about adult /youth services as well as those for children as we feel these might be beneficial for others in our community.
Children and Family Wellbeing Service (CFWS) provides early help services – these are services that may be offered at any point in a child or young person’s life, when the child is experiencing some difficulties which cannot be supported by universal services, such as schools or GP, alone.
