Oratory Primary works with the West London Mental Health as part of a nation-wide government initiative to transform children and young people’s mental health provision. This program is facilitated through Hammersmith and Fulham Mind and enables the school to receive additional mental health support.
We are very excited about what the programme offers our children. Oratory’s Designated Senior Lead for Mental Health is Mr. Patrick Alton who liaises with our Education Mental Health Practitioner, Ms. Jessie Au, who facilitates a variety of targeted and evidenced based supports for the children at our school experiencing mild to moderate well-being difficulties. She also delivers more universal workshops to larger groups of children on emotional well-being issues relevant to that cohort.
Our Teaching Assistants also run ‘nurture’ sessions with the guidance of our Special Education Needs Co-ordinator to support children with a variety of issues such as low self-esteem, bereavement, stress and resilience.
If you would like to find out more, or request support for you child you can contact Mr Alton in confidence, or fill out the referral form.
