More about Wellbeing
Emotional Health & Wellbeing
Every member of staff is committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of all our students and their families. As a school we are aware of the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE’s) on emotional health as well as the many life events which can be regarded as traumatic, all of which can be barriers to learning. At Ysgol Maesydderwen all staff use a trauma informed approach to their teaching with members of our Pastoral team being qualified Trauma Informed and Mental Health Practitioner’s. This means that they can provide specialist intervention for either small group’s or on an individual basis.
Where appropriate, they can also signpost for further specialist support eg CAMHs, counselling, etc.
How does the Trauma intervention work?
