Interventions and well-being

There are a range of interventions at The Beacon: these are appropriately planned to complement the curriculum by supporting pupil learning and the promotion of social and emotional well-being. School staff are supported by members of the NHS nursing team, SALT, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and the community paediatrician and psychiatrists.  We have the same goal for each and every child at The Beacon – that they will be supported to reach their full potential as confident, resilient and independent young people.
