At St Mary’s we are committed to the emotional needs of our children and recognise that there may be certain times in their lives when they require professional counselling support.
During these times of need we offer support through engagement with counsellors from the Community of Learning partnership (CoL2). The counsellor is able to form a strong relationship with the child and is able to meet with them in our quiet, calm and peaceful Prayer Room in school. Here they are encouraged and given time to explore their feelings through talk, creativity and therapeutic activities.
We hope that through early intervention we can help prepare the children for a bright future, knowing there is always someone who will listen to their concerns and feelings.
