Targeted Provision

Individualised support

Our targeted provision is available to all students who would benefit from extra intervention. If a student or parent feels that more individualised support is needed, they can request this via the student’s Head of Year or the inclusion team. We then work together to create a tailor made programme to support a student's individual needs.

Student support 

Student support  is provided by non-teaching members of staff who are available throughout the day to meet with students and parents to discuss any concerns. This team of highly experienced professionals includes a dedicated behaviour mentor, Mrs Amponsah, academic mentors Mrs Ruggles-Ross, Ms Ullah and Ms Bergin, and Mrs Williams, our Deputy Lead for Safeguarding and Wellbeing, who is trained in mental health and suicide first aid. 

Mrs Williams  can signpost and make referrals to multi agencies including CAMHS and social services. She also provides one to one support and co-ordinates more specialist support through our on site counsellors, child and adult mental health services (CAMHS) and social services.

The extensive network of care, guidance and support at Waldegrave School is led at each key stage by a senior leader and the director of wellbeing. Together, they oversee the work carried out by members of the student support team to ensure that any barriers to student learning and wellbeing are removed.

School counsellors

We know that waiting times for counselling services can be difficult for students and we have responded to this by providing a school counselling service. Our counsellors work with students who are experiencing family difficulties, bereavement, or struggling with low self esteem, anxiety and/or low mood. The counsellors typically work with students for 8-10 weeks. Referrals are made by Heads of Year or the DDSL with parental consent.

Emotional wellbeing practitioner (EWP)

We are part of the NHS national mental health Trailblazer Programme. As part of this we are fortunate to have an emotional wellbeing practitioner to work with our students. Our EWP runs six-week programmes of guided self-help for students on topics such as anxiety, resilience and cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT). They also run workshops for parents and provide one to one sessions for students who need individualised support for their wellbeing. Referrals are made by Heads of Year or the DDSL with parental consent.

Art Therapist

Through the Trailblazer Programme, we also have access to a specialist Art Therapist for one day per week. Our Art Therapist supports students with slightly more complex needs than the EWP. Referrals are made by Heads of Year or the DDSL with parental consent

Anna Freud Centre Support

Students can be referred for online support through the Anna Freud Centre Schools and Colleges Support Service. This is typically a 6 week course of CBT-style therapeutic input for students experiencing anxiety and low mood. Referrals are made by Heads of Year or the DDSL with parental consent.

Bromley Y Mentoring

Bromley Y provides a one to one mentoring service for students experiencing low self-esteem or disengagement from learning. Referrals are made by Heads of Year or the DDSL with parental consent.
