Mental Health and Wellbeing Support
At George Tomlinson we have a wide provision that supports the different needs of our families.
Miss Huff is our Mental Health and Well being Lead teacher.
All our staff have had emotional regulation training and we work closely with a range of agencies to support pupils in need. All our staff have 1st Aid training.
Our school nurse, Grace Olley, is in school every 2 weeks. If you would like to make an appointment with the nurse please speak to the front office.
Place2Be works in George Tomlinson 2 days a week, providing child counselling and mental health support for children, parents and staff. We have a dedicated Place2Be mental health professional who is an integral part of our school team. They work closely with pupils, families and staff to improve emotional wellbeing and provide mental health support for the whole school.
The Waltham Forest Mental Health Support Team (MHST) work with small groups of children, parents and significant adults in school every Monday.
Please find below two letters from MHST explaining who they are and what they provide.
If you would like to make an appointment to meet the team or have any questions please speak to your child’s teacher, Mrs Angeletos or Miss Huff.
