Social, Emotional and Mental Health 


Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) is critical to the development and educational achievement of children and young people and research has shown it has important consequences for health and social outcomes in adult life.


After liaising with parents, support within school can cover:

Increasing confidence and self esteem

Transition to high school

Improving attendance and punctuality

Friendships, behaviour and social skills

Support through difficulties at home and at school

Improving relationships with others

Listening and helping them to understand their feelings

Expressing their views



Support may include:

Intervention groups

Targeted individual support

Outside agency input (e.g. Counselling, Educational Psychologist, CAMHS)


We are keen to work in partnership, to support pupils and families, so if you have a concern about your child please do not hesitate to contact school on 0113 2301116 or via email at
