What should I do if my child has social, emotional or behavioural difficulties?
Children’s well-being is extremely important to us at Queensmead and we spend a lot of time trying to ensure that they feel happy, relaxed and safe at school.
If you are concerned about your child’s happiness, well-being or behaviour, either at school or at home, the first person to talk to is probably the class teacher, but any member of staff in school can be spoken to. Explain what you are worried about and anything you think might be affecting their well-being.
The class teacher may ask one of the following people to attend the meeting or to talk to you. These are also people that you may wish to contact yourself to talk about your child.
If the school has concerns about your child’s happiness, well-being or behaviour, they will discuss this with you, either at parents’ evening or by asking you for a meeting.
The types of difficulties that parents or teachers might be concerned about may include:
In school we take the view that a child’s behaviour is always trying to communicate something to us and that we need to explore and understand what it is they are trying to communicate.
