Mental health and wellbeing
Wood Field is continuing to build links with parents with relation to the mental health and wellbeing of our pupils. We are fortunate enough to work with the Sutton Children’s Wellbeing Service who provides support and advice to parents of children who are experiencing mild to moderate anxiety or common behavioural difficulties. More information can be found in this document. You will also find information about the referral process here. If you wish to refer your child, you can do so using this form. There is also a You Tube channel where you can find more supportive ideas - Children & Young People’s Wellbeing Service - YouTube
Parent workshops are organised throughout the year, often run by wellbeing practitioners and health professionals to ensure reliable information and advice is available. Previously, Wood Field has run many invaluable workshops, including child anxiety, resilience and emotional regulation. Our school newsletter continues to advertise local workshops and courses available for parents, including those with children who experience behavioural difficulties or have Special educational needs & disabilities. Please do keep an eye out any upcoming Parent workshops/courses in our newsletters!
