Emotional and Social Development

At The Hermitage Academy, we recognise that some students have additional emotional and social needs that need to be developed and nurtured. These needs can manifest themselves in a number of ways, including behavioural difficulties or anxiety and in communication difficulties.

For those students who find aspects of this difficult, we offer:

  • Year Managers/Learning Manager
  • Transition support
  • Social skills sessions
  • Counselling
  • Anger management
  • Peer Mentoring (Human Utopia)
  • Mental Health support in conjunction with CAMHS

If you, or school staff, become concerned about any developing behaviours, then we will arrange to meet with you to try to determine any possible causal factors and plan appropriate provision to support your child’s needs.
