PILOT PROJECT: Emotional and behavioural support for children in school.
Talk Through It, funded by a local independent registered charity, Children First International (Reg. number 1057811) will be running a pilot project during the 2019/2020 Autumn and Winter term, focusing on emotional and behavioural support for children and teenagers.
Schools involved in the project will receive 1-2-1 support for referred pupils, with Gerry.
How it works: Schools choose the pupils they would like to refer, but they must meet the criteria set out in the letter sent to schools (Not currently receiving help from the EHA team or funding from and EHC plan). Pupils may be on a waiting list for CAMHS or may not have met the threshold for CAMHS intervention. They may be school refusers or struggle to stay in school.
Gerry meets and talks to parents at the beginning of the sessions.
Gerry meets the referred person and arranges to see them on a regular basis, once a week, for ten sessions. (It may be that some pupils will not need all of the sessions and if this is the case, others may receive support for the remainder of the sessions.)
Sessions will be approximately 45 minutes.
During the course of the sessions, Gerry will use the solution-focused approach to talk through the presenting issues.
A final meeting with parents will take place at the end, to assess the impact of the sessions.
