What difference does Place2Be make in your child’s school?

Place2Be is a national charity working in over 235 UK schools to improve the confidence and emotional wellbeing of children. We help children to develop resilience by supporting them when they are experiencing challenging life issues and helping them to develop self-confidence and lifelong coping skills. When they are supported in this way, they are able to learn more easily and that means less worry for parents.

How we help children

All pupils can find help with friendship issues and other worries by choosing to visit Place2Talk. These short sessions are open to individuals and to groups. Place2Be also works with children one-to-one, offering regular time-tabled support for those who will benefit most. The school will often refer children for this service.

How we help families

We routinely meet with parents to discuss any concerns they may have about their children. We also have a Parent Practitioner who can do sessions working specifically on parenting strategies and your relationship with your child. 

Who is eligible for Place2Be?

Any child requiring emotional support for any reason.

Any questions?

You are welcome to talk to your Place2Be Mental Health Practitioner/School Counsellor; either face-to-face, via telephone or email. At Christ Church Primary School, this is Cal who works on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. You can get in touch by calling the school office.
