Social, Emotional and Mental Health

Children and young people may experience a wide range of social and emotional difficulties which manifest themselves in many ways. SEND Code of Practice, 2015, 6.32.


Our pupils social, emotional and mental health needs are of great importance to us. We understand that a child's readiness to learn is greatly dependent on their state of well-being. 

As such, we have a strong nurturing ethos here at The Grove Nursery and Infant School, apparent in the way we interact with our pupils, a broad and balanced curriculum and additional provisions to support our children's social, emotional and mental health needs.


For more information about how we support children's social, emotional and mental health needs, please see our Well-Being and Nurture page.
