The Wellbeing Studio
Our Inclusion Team is made up of our Learning Mentor Mrs Jamie Izzo, our Principal Mrs Holloway and our SENCO, Mrs Helen Wollington. Our Learning Mentor is based in the Wellbeing Studio.
The studio is used for one to one or small group sessions that may include but is not restricted to, wellbeing journaling, take a breath breaks, sensory breaks, pastoral care and mentoring and nurture groups.
We work with children using co-regulation strategies in order to support healthy wellbeing in all aspects of emotional, physical and relationship health with our end goal to securing a more holistic, inclusive and needs-led ‘whole child’ approach to education.
We believe at Gaglebrook that family and community contribute greatly to the education of children and so we are available to offer support in this field to parents and careers to be able to mirror strategies within the home.
You can contact any member of the team to discuss your child’s needs via email to [email protected]
The Rainbow Room
The Rainbow Room is used to support children with sensory modulation difficulties or when a child needs some sensory stimulation. All children have access to the rainbow room by either a 1:1 with an adult or within a small group with an adult.
The aim of the rainbow room is to minimise sensory barriers to their learning, enabling the child to get back in to a positive frame of mind so they can access their classroom, and curriculum successfully.
Alongside the wellbeing studio, support is given to the children to teach them some co-regulation strategies in order to support healthy wellbeing in all aspects of emotional, physical and relationship health with our end goal to securing a more holistic, inclusive and needs-led ‘whole child’ approach to education. You can contact any member of the team to discuss your child’s needs via email to [email protected]
