Whole School Intervention/Therapeutic Offer
At Victory Park we aim to be a mentally healthy school. A mentally healthy school is one that adopts a whole-school approach to mental health and wellbeing. It is a school that helps children flourish, learn and succeed by providing opportunities for them, and the adults around them, to develop the strengths and coping skills that underpin resilience.
The school includes a therapeutic education. This is achieved by a holistic approach including meaningful, therapeutic relationships between students and staff. How adults relate to students is viewed as just as important as what is taught throughout the school day.
The curriculum includes subjects as PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education), RSE in Secondary (Relationships and Sex education), RE in primary (Relationships education) and citizenship which are crucial elements to maximising pupils’ emotional wellbeing.
The school also offers individual counselling for pupils who need support with their emotional needs. Three qualified counsellors use a range of counselling skills including CBT, transactional analysis and play therapy to address a range of individual needs.
An art therapist supports groups around issues such as self- esteem and exam nerves and also supports individual pupils.
Pupils are referred to outside agencies for occupational therapy and speech therapy.
