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.
All our staff have had emotional regulation training and we work closely with a range of agencies to support pupils in need.
Waltham Forest Mental Health Support Team
We are delighted to share with you that we will be working with the Waltham Forest Mental Health Support Team (MHST). Every Monday, two practitioners will be working in school with parents and small groups of children.
Please find below two letters from MHST explaining who they are and what they provide. If you would like to attend their sessions or have any questions please speak to your child’s teacher, our SENDCO Mrs Angeletos or Miss Huff who is our new Mental Health Lead.
