Protocol programme

Identified pupils follow a structured six-week “Protocol” programme. Parents/carers and class staff help set targets at the start of the programme and revisit them at the end to assess progress.  We have found this support is crucial in the nurturing of our pupils’ mental health and wellbeing, and the close family links formed have proved to be very valuable.

All support is treated confidentially and permission is sought from parents. Advice may be given for further support or referrals to our school counsellor or external agencies if needed.

Non-Protocol programme

This may be a continuation of the protocol programme if needed to reinforce strategies learned or a few sessions for pupils who may require extra pastoral care for different reasons.

Class groups 

Peer massage and Ready steady Learn techniques are used within classes to promote mental health and well-being, relaxation, friendship, empathy, and to prepare pupils for learning.

How does A Quiet Place support our school community?

Massage and staff relaxation.

Staff learn to use calming strategies to support pupils’ emotions

Supports home/school links by supporting and empowering parents who are consulted and given proven strategies to calm and manage their child’s behaviour and sleep routines.

Parents can talk to someone offering confidential support for their well-being.

Data shows that AQP has a positive impact on pupil’s mental health and wellbeing and many of the technique’s pupils learn are transferred to home.
