What support is available for improving the emotional and social development of pupils with SEN/ D?

At Stanley Primary School we understand that an important feature of the school is to enable all pupils to develop emotional resilience and social skills, both through direct teaching for instance e.g. PSHE, registration time and indirectly with every conversation adults have with pupils throughout the day. 

Pupils in the early stages of emotional and social development because of their special educational needs will be supported to enable them to develop and mature appropriately.  This will usually require additional and different resources, beyond that required by pupils who do not need this support. The SENCo/Inclusion Leader may, under the consent of the parent, feel it is appropriate to coordinate additional support through access to a mentor, time with member of SLT or leadership team, an external referral to CAHMS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service), or access to a therapeutic intervention. Some pupils may benefit from additional support through specific behaviour strategies, such as the use of social stories, time out spaces and personalised reward charts.
