Additional Targeted and Specialist Support

For most children our PSHE curriculum, Zones of Regulation and Protective Behaviours are enough to promote good mental health and wellbeing. However, there may be times where some children might need a little bit more support for a while. We call this targeted support. We use both school staff and external professionals to support us with this.


Sometimes, for a few children, specialist support is the most appropriate and we are able to refer to the following professionals. These services have their own referral criteria and thresholds.

  • Nessie (Arts Therapy and Counselling)
  • CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services)
  • PALMS (Positive behaviour, Autism, Learning disability and Mental Health Service)
  • LINKS (LINKS Academy Outreach)
