Hallfield Primary School works with Place2Be, the UK's leading children's mental health charity providing in-school support and expert training, to help improve the emotional wellbeing of pupils, families, teachers and school staff.
Pupils can find help with friendship issues and other worries by choosing to visit Place2Talk. Children can book to see a counsellor on their lunch or break time and attend on their own or in a group.
For more information on Place2Talk, please read the information sheet at the end of this page.
Place2Be also works with children individually and in small groups, offering regular time-tabled support for those who will benefit most, working closely with parents and school staff.
There is a dedicated Place2Be room in the school where children can go to express and think about their worries, through talking, creative work and play. This helps children to find new ways of coping with difficulties so they don’t get in the way of friendships or learning.
Place2Be also offers support and advice for parents and carers, as well as teachers and school staff. Please do get in touch with our School Project Manager, Stacey Riberdy, to find out more.
