The last few years have been a very challenging time for young people. The impact of lockdowns and Covid-19 on existing trauma, anxiety, mental health and wellbeing has been a significant factor for many.

This has created a high level of demand for support organisations across Devon, leading to long waiting times to access support and services.

At Belong School Devon our Learning Coach Champions Shannon and John have specific roles providing support to students and staff regarding trauma informed practice, mental health & wellbeing.

Belong School staff attend regular professional development training on the effective use of approaches and strategies to help support our students. We would like to extend this offer to parents and carers, who are invited to join Shannon and John to learn about the strategies and techniques we are using at school. The sessions are focussed around providing practical approaches and strategies to support your young person and help to support joined-up working between home and school. Each session is planned to last 1 hour and will be held in Exeter and Newton Abbot. To find out more, or to book a place please contact the school reception.
