Therapeutic Practice at Lamledge School
We recognise that emotional wellbeing is an essential pre-requisite for academic success, positive behaviour and positive mental health. As a team we work proactively to build esteem, self-image, aspiration and a sense of belonging. We also recognise that the work we do here doesn’t just impact upon the young person whilst they are with us, but lays the future foundations for a happy, meaningful and healthy lifestyle. We aim to equip our young people with the skills, belief systems and confidence to achieve in school, at home and in the world of lifelong learning and work
As well as delivering the best possible education, we also have a clinical team who provide care and therapy to benefit the children and young people in our school. Our clinical team includes:
- Speech and Language Therapists
- Occupational Therapists
- Trained Counsellors
- Access to other types of therapy as required
The team work with each student, as well as their parents or carers, to agree a support plan which will become part of their school life, enabling them to build on their strengths and increase their resilience.
We aim to provide our students with a safe, caring and nurturing community with clear, consistent boundaries and high expectations. Relationships are at the heart of our approach and are based on sensitive understanding of a young person’s experiences and the areas in which they require more support.
Behaviour is understood as a form of communication and all staff work together to enable the healthy physical, social, and emotional development of each student.
