To mark her continued commitment to children’s mental health, Place2Be’s Royal Patron visits Reach Academy to learn about their early years provision, work with parents and support for secondary pupils 

Today, 10th January 2018, HRH The Duchess of Cambridge visited Place2Be Partner School Reach Academy Feltham to learn more about how the school supports children, families and the whole school community throughout their school career.

During her visit, HRH learnt about the school's early years provision in the nursery and spoke to parents who have benefited from the school's parenting support. The Duchess also had a brief tour of the school before joining a discussion with Place2Be staff and a group of secondary pupils from the Academy about the range of support on offer at their school, including emotional wellbeing support, LGBT groups and a girls' group.

Reach Academy is a free school opening in September 2012, and now serves pupils from Nursery through to year 12 in Secondary. Place2Be has worked with the team at Reach since the school opened and has provided mental health and emotional wellbeing support to pupils, families and staff members. As well as supporting pupils, Reach Academy is committed to working with parents and believes that communication between home and school is vital.
