St Edmunds Society has a reputation for offering support and opportunities for young people throughout Norfolk. Our welfare and pastoral team have developed a complete wrap around package of emotional and welfare support for young people.

We are able to offer access to our support process to schools and colleges, where it is recognised that standard methods are falling short of a young person’s needs. This service can support teaching staff struggling to understand how best to manage and perhaps improve the negative behaviours often displayed by students. We can support a young person’s emotional wellbeing and assist you in finding practical and manageable ways to prevent a young person from breaking down their placement and becoming NEET.

Our welfare team have expertise in SEN, SEMH, Teaching, Behaviour Management, Counselling, Anger Management, Wellbeing Champion and EHCP liaison.

Schools, Colleges and Learning Providers

If your students are:

• Putting their school/college placement at risk through behaving negatively;
• Struggling with emotional difficulties;
• Have low self-esteem and or confidence;
• Displaying risk-taking behaviours;
• In family breakdown;
• Refusing or struggling to engage with professional support.

We can certainly help…………

A tailored package might entail an initial meeting with the school/setting to establish level of need, 1:1 support with the young person to assess need, home visits to parent/carers to establish their views and parental support required, arranged support within the college/vocational setting and much more.

Parents and Carers

Are you a parent that is struggling to understand your child’s behaviours?

Do you often feel that nobody understands and that you are not being listened to?

Would you like some support to find practical solutions for positive change?

We can:
• Provide support that meets the differing needs of all school age students so that each is equipped with the skills to cope with life.
• Understand and help improve hard to manage behaviours;
• Support students to address social, mental, emotional and physical needs;
• Build and maintain an atmosphere in which students feel secure, encouraged in their learning, growth and social development and know that they are valued within a healthy and safe environment;
• Reassure parents/carers that their children are being educated in a safe and nurturing environment;
