About Us

Emotion and Wellbeing Support

At Western, we believe that a pupil's happiness and wellbeing are the foundation for their success and that it is essential to nurture, not just the academic progress of the child, but to look after the 'whole person'.

We recognise that attachment and being valued as an individual are central to the learning process.

Our Emotion & Wellbeing Team take every opportunity to teach strategies for building social skills, resilience and raising self-esteem. At Western, these are seen as vital steps in preparing our pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities, and experiences of life.

When children are struggling emotionally, they can often find it difficult to understand their feelings or to express themselves verbally. Our dedicated team are able to work alongside external agencies and directly work with children to offer a range of 1 to 1 and group work support.

Interventions are regularly reviewed to ensure that dedicated support is having a meaningful impact and promoting progress for pupils. The pupil’s class or subject teacher retains overall responsibility for their progress.
