If you are worried your child may need support with their mental health, please talk to your child's class teacher. Mrs Crouch is also available, contact the school office to make an appointment with her.
Many of you will already know about ESCP and the mental health services they offer our school. Louise Alltimes is our Therapeutic Lead in School and she is here to support your child(ren), you and also our staff:
The Space: Every Friday, Louise offers a lunchtime drop-in for children who want to talk about any feelings or worries they may be struggling with. This is a safe, confidential space where children can feel listened to in order to feel better or to better understand their emotions. The children can complete a Space slip and put it into one of the red boxes that are around school. If you would NOT like your child to make use of this service, please notify the school as soon as possible.
1:1 counselling: We have Klaudia, who is an Arts psychotherapist, working with specific children who may benefit from more regular support, using therapeutic play and the creative arts.
Every Friday at 9-10am, Louise holds a safe and confidential space to meet with parents/carers who would like some support. She is here to help you to either think through some of your concerns with one of your children, or to support you with a personal struggle, such as grief or loss, for example. If you would like to make an appointment to speak to Louise, please either email her at email@example.com or call/text her on 07582310756
Louise is also here to support all our staff, whether through trainings or by helping them think about specific children who may need a little extra help.
