Our school is a place of learning, growth and love. We offer your child a safe space in which to express themselves, their ideas and emotions and in return we offer unconditional support and guidance.
At Clough and Risegate we recognise that mental health and wellbeing are equally as important as physical health and much like physical health there are times when we will not be feeling well in ourselves.
After successfully completing my training last year I am pleased to say that I am now a registered ELSA and I am confident that this well regarded status will enable me to continue to help even more children thrive at school.

ELSA and Pastoral Mentor
I’ve been thinking about Christmas; specifically, how stressful it can be for parents especially when there is a “must have” toy and adverts everywhere glorifying expensive bits of plastic that never live up to the hype.
So, I thought I’d let you into a little school secret. When your children come back to school in January they do tell us all about those fabulous toys that they so longed for but overwhelmingly the one thing they talk about more and for longer are the memories you have made.
Family being together, going for walks, playing games, adults being silly, snuggling on the sofa to watch a film. These are the things that really matter to them.
If in these difficult times you can’t quite stretch the budget as much as you would normally please don’t worry or feel bad, of course the excitement of opening presents is something we all enjoy but after that initial frenzy of excitement is over they just really love spending time with you.
What is Mindfulness?
You may wish to have a look at a short Power Point “Easy Mindfulness” that briefly explains some of the key terms and some simple strategies for you to try.
If you or your child feels worried or anxious please do not suffer alone. We are here for you and can be contacted at: firstname.lastname@example.org .
