Place2Be at Bader

We are delighted to say that as of 1st September 2016 school is working in partnership with the leading national children’s mental health charity, Place2Be. They will be in school every Wednesday afternoon, all day Thursday and all day Friday. Place2Be provides emotional support in primary and secondary schools, building children’s resilience through talking, creative work and play.

HRH The Duchess of Cambridge is the Royal patron of Place2Be. She says:

The exceptional counselling service that Place2Be provides in schools is transformational. It ensures that these children can thrive and take the best possible path in life.

Our young people are growing up in a busy world, facing so many different pressures. Supporting them when the going gets tough is difficult for both family and school. We have decided, therefore, to bring in the support of an organisation that have a great and growing reputation for offering expert support around this.
Place2Be work in the building that used to house the ICT suite. We have totally renovated the space so that it is fit for purpose. Our School Project Manager is Sally Izon. Sally is supported by an assistant school project manager.

Support includes:

  • One-to-one counselling (short- and long-term), to suit each child’s needs
  • Place2Talk, a drop in/self-referral service open to all pupils
  • Group work on issues such as transition into secondary school, bereavement, friendship and self-esteem

Services for others

  • Parents, grandparents and carers: counselling and support services
  • School staff: support, consultation and training
  • Partnership working with statutory agencies, voluntary sector partners and community groups
