Social, Mental & Emotional Health
At Ivy House School, we understand that it is difficult for our pupils to learn effectively if they are struggling with mental health issues. This can encompass a very wide scale including stress caused by a single event; obsessive compulsive disorder; eating disorders; depression or issues around low self-esteem and anxiety to name but a few.
There is a very nurturing approach at Ivy House. Teachers and Teaching Assistants stay with the class all day so they are able to build up relationships with pupils and their parents/carers - know and understand their needs and work together to ensure the correct support is in place. Ivy House works closely with other professionals who can support including Educational Psychologists, Speech and Language Therapists (SaLT) and Occupational Therapists (OT).
