Place2Be is a charity which works in our school to improve the confidence and wellbeing of children. The Duchess of Cambridge is the charity's Patron.
How Place2Be works
There is a special Place2Be room inside the school where children can go to express and think about their worries through talking, creative work and play.
Trained adults called School Project Managers support this process, helping children to find new ways of coping with difficulties so they don't get in the way of friendships of learning.
Times when Place2Be is especially useful
There are times when children feel particularly sad, confused, fearful or angry, due to family probelms such as separation or illness, or even the death of a much-loved pet. Some may become withdrawn; others may become demanding or challenging in their behaviour: that's when having Place2Be in school is especially helpful.
How Place2Be helps children
Place2Be works with children one-to-one and in small groups, offering regular time-tabled support for those who will benefit most.
All children can find help with friendship issues and other worries by choosing to visit Place2Talk. Short lunchtime sessions are open to individuals and to groups.
How Place2Be helps families
Place2Be routinely meets with parents to discuss their worries about their children. Place4Parents offers adults support with any issues affecting their parenting and/or their relationship with their children.
