At Sidestrand Hall School we want everyone involved with our school to feel well supported. We believe that good pastoral support focuses on nurturing the individual needs for each child. We aim to build trusting empathetic relationships with all of our pupils and families.
At Sidestrand Hall School we recognise that pupils’ emotional and mental health is vital to students being able to thrive and reach their potential. An important part of our school ethos is the nurturing of all of our pupils which is why we have adopted Thrive and Zones of Regulation as whole school approaches. Thrive and Zones of Regulation are programmes that run in each pupils’ class. For those students who need more intensive support as a 1:1 or small group session we have a full time Qualified Thrive Practitioner onsite.
We also offer Drawing and Talking therapy on an individual basis and music therapy sessions delivered by a visiting music therapist who supports small groups and individuals one day a week.
