Support for Emotional & Social Development

At Newker Primary School, we consult with a range of agencies and partnerships to facilitate
arrangements for supporting children and young people with emotional and social needs. The
Class Teacher has overall responsibility for the pastoral, medical and social care of every child in
their class, therefore this would be the parents’ first point of contact. If further support is required,
the class teacher liaises with the SENDCO, or Parent Support Advisor (Mrs. Izomor) for further
advice and support. This may involve working alongside outside agencies such as Health and
Social Services, and/or the Behaviour Support Team.

Views of all children are taken into account through Pupil Questionnaires, the School Council
representatives and regular discussions with children as part of the school’s monitoring, focussing
on different aspects of school life e.g. learning, environment, behaviour etc.

School accesses the services of a specialist councillor and children can be referred to the services

for a range of needs.

Examples of interventions/provision offered to support children’s emotional and social

development are:
• Lego Therapy
• Getting Along Programme
• Social stories
