The Nest

The Nest is a room specifically equipped to provide a space where we can support the emotional and mental health needs of our children.

The children can talk confidentially and be supported to explore and understand their feelings and emotions.  Here, we can help begin to equip our children with the skills to manage their emotions and mental health throughout their life.  In the Nest, we can provide the time and space for pupils to think about their personal circumstances and how they manage them.  Our work in the room is constantly evolving to meet the needs of our children.


One of the ways children can express themselves emotionally is through play and we are so very grateful for the wonderful contributions our families have made to fund and equip this.  We can now run Lego therapy sessions and groups for anxiety, self-esteem, anger management, regulating emotions, promoting positive friendships, 1:1 Talking and Drawing and much more!
