Highfield is now working with Place2Be, the UK’s leading children’s mental health charity providing in-school support and expert training to help improve the emotional well being of pupils, families, teachers and school staff.
Our Place2Be School Project Manager is Becca Bomford, who works on Wednesdays and Thursdays. You can contact her by telephone on those days, via the School Office, or face-to-face at the start or end of the school day.
How Place2Be helps pupils
Pupils can find help with friendship issues and other worries by choosing to visit Place2Talk. They can book to see the School Project Manager during their lunch time and attend on their own or with friends.
Place2Be also works with children individually and in small groups, offering regular time-tabled support for those who will benefit most, working closely with parents and school staff.
There is a dedicated Place2Be room inside the school where children can go to express and think about their worries, through talking, creative work and play. This helps children to find new ways of coping with difficulties so they don’t get in the way of friendships or learning.
Please watch the video below which will hopefully give you a better understanding of how Place2Be supports children and families in schools like ours across the country.
