Wellbeing intervention programmes

A comprehensive range of SEL and SEMH intervention programmes to support a whole school graduated response to support the high level of primary-stage children with SEMH difficulties.

We provide the framework, language and content for courageous conversations about mental health and emotions and the structure to support children’s emotional and social development.

The complete programme enhances PSHE and focuses on ten key emotional themes; friendship, resilience, anxiety, diversity, strong emotions and anger, change and transition, conflict resolution, loss and bereavement, sadness and self-esteem.

  • A complete package – everything schools need from detailed progressive session plans, impact tools, wellbeing journals, parent/carer leaflets, motivational resources, sock puppet pet craft kits, access to Resource Hub and optional impact reporting dashboard.
  • Reduce exclusions and improve wellbeing and attendance – interventions increase emotional regulation and positively influence educational engagement.

  • Empower staff – equip pastoral staff with greater confidence to deliver vital emotional literacy programmes with empathy, insight and awareness.

  • Trauma and attachment-aware content – the importance of relationships is at the core, to help children gain transferable emotional literacy skills for life and learning.
  • Demonstrate impact – digital resources for EHCP, SEN and PEP reviews to capture post-programme impact in line with Ofsted and ISI inspection frameworks.

  • Capture children’s voice – ensuring children feel heard, understood and empowered to share their experiences.
  • Cost-effective investment in children’s wellbeing – reusable resources that cost just pence per child.
  • Advice, training and supervision – packages are available including free options.
