At Elmstead, we offer wellbeing hubs that operate as an after-school club at which children are provided with additional structured support. The project is aimed at children with emerging difficulties and those that do not reach the threshold for statutory services. The programme objectives are:

Develop resilience skills

Encourage each child to recognise and express emotion

Empower children

Enable children to start to develop their self esteem

Equip children with a set of skills and choices to tackle things that cause anxiety

To gain a “rucksack of skills” to take them forward into secondary school and beyond into the world of employment.






As a school, we offer in-school support for children from a Thrive-trained practitioner. Teachers are already accessing support for individuals,  however, as a parent, you may feel that your child would benefit from learning strategies to help them reduce anxieties or increase their self-confidence. Maybe you feel they would benefit from having someone to speak to about their concerns/worries in school or perhaps just have someone to talk to that is not emotionally attached to a situation. If you feel your child would benefit from Well-being please speak to your child's class teacher or Miss Matthews.
