Well-being support at Inclusion School
Emotional well-being and mental health support are key to all that we offer here at Inclusion School.
This approach informs all aspects of school life and our mental health strategy is embedded within the curriculum – providing a safe, nurturing and supportive environment to all of our learners.
Our trauma informed approach positions learners at the centre of their education, allowing them the space to direct the pace and direction of their learning whilst providing an engaging and accessible curriculum.
We adopt a PACE approach as well as utilising Zones of Regulation to support our learners.
All our tutors and teachers are trained in a specialist support for learners, with awareness and empathy running through all subjects we engage learners with.
In addition to this learners are also able to access further help from our Emotional Well-being Practitioner – trained as both ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support) and TALA (Therapeutic Active Listening)
This could range from 1 to1 sessions, group work, or working together on an activity such as baking or crafting to more informal support as required by the individual learner.
They also have access to Equine therapy, horticulture for well-being and our onsite Therapy dogs – Casper, Fern and Matilda.
