Specialist & Therapeutic Support Partners

The Consortium Multi Academy Trust has identified that some children within our schools would benefit from therapy or specialist additional support and have engaged a number of support partners to offer support to the schools, children and their families with the help they need. Whilst the Trust has commissioned therapy and specialist additional support, referrals will be planned by the Academy Head in conjunction with the child's family.  It should be recognised that intervention will be intense.

Our CYP Mental Health & Wellbeing Champion

The Consortium Multi Academy Trust is proud to be a mental health and wellbeing champion for our pupils and has established its own Pupil Mental Health Forum which includes three registered SENDCo Qualified Teachers within the Trust, as well as our Head of Service for Curriculum Innovation, Sam Cutler. 

The Trust's overarching SENDCo, Kathy Brooke is now registered as a Wellbeing Champion with the Link Project, through the Point 1 organisation, set up to help us improve the mental health of children and young people in Norfolk and Waveney.  



If you have any concerns regarding the mental health and wellbeing of a pupil at one of our academy schools, please contact Kathy Brooke on:  http://sendco@consortiumacademy.org

Break charity's approach is relationship based; sessions provide a safe, consistent space. Practitioners use a range of creative activities and tools to support children to explore and express their feelings. Sessions can be provided for children alone or children supported by their parents or carers. Children who no longer live within their family or who have experienced changes and difficulties may benefit from therapeutic life story work or from sessions which enable them to reconnect with their senses. This therapy includes play therapy, drama therapy and art therapy.

We are aware that parental influence is a key factor in children’s attainment in schools, and that this can be compromised by complex family difficulties. We are able to work with the whole family in the most effective setting: our own city-based therapeutic rooms, the school or the home. We provide services in schools including individual therapeutic work for children and group work such as art therapy and drama therapy. We also provide support to staff with pastoral and safeguarding responsibilities.

"The behaviour of one child in our school was so bad it was affecting the moral, focus and standards of the whole school. It affected everyone to such an extent that I was seriously considering giving up teaching for good. Then Gemstones were employed to resolve the issues. As the problems were resolved I rediscovered my passion for teaching and now enjoy it more than ever." - Teacher

It isn't just the individual children we help! By resolving their behavioural issues we help parents, teachers, as well as all of the pupils in the school. Raising Standards and expectations at the same time as reducing precious time and the associated costs.

By resolving a child's problems as part of their development process prevents potential costs being incurred to the wider community if left unchecked. 

Gemstones provide both short term and longer term solutions to cover all requirements.

BellsCroft offers a range of training programmes designed to support staff within education, who may encounter a range of behaviours within their everyday environment.  This may vary from low level disruption through to serious incidents.  The focus of the programme is on early interventions.

In order to prevent the use of restrictive interventions our programmes focus on de-escalation, reporting, recording and planning.  Through this process, BellsCroft seek to identify individualised strategies to support leadership/management teams to develop audit trails to evidence best practise, consistency and clear communication within their school.
