Place2Be's highly skilled practitioners deliver services in 282 schools across the UK. We offer a menu of services for primary and secondary schools, providing support for children, parents, teachers and school staff.
Place2Be offers a flexible menu of services, tailored to meet
schools' needs. The typical model is based on a team of five or
more Place2Be personnel (both clinical staff and highly skilled
volunteers) delivering a range of services in a school.
We work with children in primary schools at a vital stage of
their development. We offer them support to cope with emotional and
behavioural difficulties which has a positive impact on the whole
class, and helps teachers focus on teaching. We also offer support
for school staff and parents.
Transition to secondary school can be challenging for some young
people, while others may struggle to cope with specific life events
or experience increased stress and anxiety during adolescence.
We offer 20 years experience of providing a sustainable,
integrated service at the heart of the school community. Our
commitment to thorough research and evaluation means we fine-tune
our model to meet pupils' needs.
Many of the schools that Place2Be work in use the pupil premium to fund Place2Be's in-school therapeutic services, given the impact that our services have on classroom behaviour and attitudes to learning.
