Sandown School

Social Emotional Mental Health

How we help support the Social and Emotional wellbeing of children at Sandown School.

 At Sandown school we are constantly monitoring not only academic achievement but the social and emotional well-being of all our children.

We believe that developing a child’s self-awareness and social skills provides the basis for successful learning both academically and for maintaining relationships.


   How are children identified?

At Sandown if a child is struggling in one of these areas the class teacher will refer these children to our SENCO, who works alongside the parents and Miss Buckett, our intervention teacher, to ensure they get the correct support.

How do we support the children? 

Colour monsters are used throughout the school to encourage children to discuss and understand their feelings. They are also used in every classroom as a tool for the children to let their teacher know how they are feeling.  

An overview of the planning for the different groups running this academic year can be found below along with some of the resources that will be used to support the children.
