Schools Supervision Groups

It is important that school staff are able to reflect on their practice, consider their wellbeing and explore innovative ways to support children, young people and families. We will be holding supervision groups for staff starting from September 2018 to July 2019. We will be focusing on social-emotional wellbeing and mental health, family support and safeguarding and social communication and interaction.
