At Churchfield we have a very dedicated and highly-skilled Wellbeing Team who are here top support you and your child in anyway that we can.
Our Wellbeing Team has expertise in a wide range of areas. We strongly believe that children learn best when they are happy, settled and have good attendance, and we strive to ensure that every child has the opportunity to grow, achieve and shine.
Mrs Phillips – Wellbeing Manager
Mrs Phillips is our Wellbeing Manager and the first port-of-call for parents who require support.
‘I work to encourage parental involvement within school and hope to empower parents to take an active role in their child’s social, emotional and educational development. I can help to overcome barriers to your children’s learning by ensuring there is effective dialogue between parents and teachers with regard to your child’s progress. As part of the Safeguarding Team I work closely with outside agencies to support you and your child by offering a confidential service to families at times when there may be changes in their lives or extra support is required. I am here to listen and care in a non judgemental way. I have access to an extensive range of information, which means I am able to signpost parents to a variety of services who may be able to help.” – Mrs Phillips
Mrs Young – Learning Mentor
Mrs Young is our Learning Mentor and supports children in school on a range of issues. These may be social, emotional or behavioural, and are addressed through one to one support and small group work.
“I am here to support all children throughout school, and to help them, to help themselves overcome any social, emotional and behavioural barriers they may have which affects their or other’s learning. This is through focussed 1-1 support and small group work promoting discussion, turn taking and social skills. As well as regular weekly sessions, children are also able to see me when the need arises, dealing with issues as they occur. During the mornings, I also work with children in a classroom situation, giving extra support and encouragement where needed.” – Mrs Young
