At Clarity, we take mental health and wellbeing very seriously, realising and supporting the children through the impact the pandemic has had on their, and their families' lives. We also support them through other life-challenges they face and help them navigate their SEND. 

 

Our Designated safeguarding lead is Mrs Ailara, and Mrs Hanson supports her as the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead.

Weekly Wellbeing Coaching is provided for all children at Clarity, with individual counselling sessions on an ongoing basis throughout their time here. Sue O'Sullivan, SOS Holistics delivers a comprehensive provision of wellbeing therapies, including art therapy, play therapy and talking therapy. 

For pupils: “If you are experiencing difficulties right now, or need help, why not speak to your keyworker or one of your teachers or support staff in school? You can also speak to Mrs Ailara or Mrs Hanson to get help in school, or there are other agencies that you can speak to if you prefer someone you do not know. Examples are the Samaritans, the NCPCC, Mind or the NHS urgent help line.”
