• What support will there be for my child’s overall well-being?
At Nettleworth, we aim to create an enabling environment where all children progress and develop their full potential. We develop routines and stability to ensure that children feel safe and use a range of positive behaviour strategies and rewards. Our consistent approach to behaviour is outlined in our behaviour policy, which can be found on our school website. Occasionally, some children may require a adaptations to our behaviour system, which is individually tailored to meet their needs. Where this is the case, this will be discussed and agreed with parents.
Where staff are aware that a child or young person may be experiencing friendship difficulties, a buddy system will be set up, or a ‘Circle of Friends’ initiated with the intention of supporting a child in and out the classroom.
Circle time groups also run across school every week, which address issues such as bullying, relationships and safety, as well as topical global issues. Our SCARF learning covers topics to ensure children and encouraged to understand diversity and inclusion.
We have a comprehensive PSH/RSE curriculum which is taught in each class alongside themed assemblies for children to share and reflect.
We have adopted the ‘Thrive’ approach where all children are profiled to assess if there are any personal, social and emotional difficulties that can be supported. Class teachers plan in activities specific to their class profile and small group or 1-1 support sessions is given where it is needed.
If a parent has any concerns regarding their child’s overall well-being, these should be discussed with the child’s class teacher in the first instance.
