Schools are at the forefront of supporting our children and families. Engagement with services is key but often parents require a more time sensitive therapeutic approach, building emotional resilience and providing containment for the challenges they may be facing. Such support in turn impacts positively on the child, as the parent feels more able to cope. Support for a family can be accessed and reviewed on a half termly basis giving schools flexibility to increase support or access other alternative provision.
Those children identified as being at risk of suspension or have had any fixed term suspensions may be entitled to additional support with funding through the District 6 Inclusion Hub, this will be assessed on an individual basis following completion of the McMullen project or DG6 referral form.
This is a voluntary service and must be completed with consent from both parent and child.
The intervention will be scheduled over a 7 week period, with children accessing sessions in school and parents accessing sessions at Ashton and Lea Golf Club. Transport for parents will be provided both to and from the session, overcoming any potential barriers for engagement.
The cost of a 7 week intervention is: £640 (parent & child)
