At Bromesberrow, we value the wellbeing of our children, parents and staff. We are delighted that our school has been given the opportunity to take part in a growing national programme to help make mental health support for our children more available when they and their families need it through the Trailblazer programme. As one of 72 schools from Cheltenham, Gloucester and the Forest of Dean to work with the NHS in Gloucestershire to introduce support teams within school, we have the opportunity to reach out to professionals in ways to assist us as teachers and also give our children and families the guidance they may need.
These teams provide valuable strategies and support to our children to help them with life’s little ups and downs, for example, friendship concerns, understanding their behaviours or worries they may have. This support could be given 1-1 or in group work.
The trailblazer programme, through Young Minds Matter, also offers support for parents and teachers to help their children and young people who are experiencing difficulties through a wide range of training and can link with other Gloucestershire services.
If you would like any further information or feel a referral to the service may be supportive please contact your school Mental Health Lead: Leonie Mison firstname.lastname@example.org
