At St Marys Primary we are here to offer support for all our children and families. As a whole school approach, we support all children's physical and emotional well being ensuring that children are safe, happy and thrive to their full potential. We recognise that sometimes family situations can change and this can affect children so a supportive package is put in place for both the child and the family.

When a child needs support, we offer a tiered approach that is personalised to the individual needs of the child and is regularly assessed based on the progress. Depending on the success of the intervention, it may either be withdrawn or extended. The tiers are as follows:

Tier 1 - In class support strategies offered with weekly check ins from the class teaching team.

Tier 2 - Group support intervention based on need.

Tier 3 - 1:1 sessions weekly to reinforce positive behaviours and work on individual needs alongside parent support.

Furthermore we are here to not only support pupils but families as well, please see below for some useful information surrounding any difficulties you may be experiencing at home. Or if you would like any further support please feel free to contact us.
