Students’ Wellbeing

At Wargrave House School we are committed to promoting a whole school approach to positive mental health and emotional wellbeing for all learners, their families and members of staff and governors.

Our open culture allows Learners’ voices to be heard, and through the use of effective policies and procedures we ensure a safe and supportive environment for all affected – both directly and indirectly – by mental health issues.

Wargrave House School provides a nurturing and supportive environment in which learners and students are provided with opportunities and experiences in accordance to their individual needs. Our aim is to help learners become more resilient, be happy and successful and prevent problems before they arise.

Well-being support our school offers:

  • Lego therapy
  • Music therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Sensory diets
  • Regulation support
  • Speech and Language support
  • Makaton and AAC support
  • PSHE lessons
  • Emotional literacy – ELSA
  • Individualised curriculum
  • Therapy Dog
  • Transition Support
  • Well-being and Mental Health Leads – to provide support to students, staff and parents.

Whilst we recognise that academic learning is important, we understand that if a learner’s social and emotional needs are not met then there will be limited progress in meeting wider educational outcomes and a poor quality of life.

Our curriculum therefore focuses firstly on creating an environment that allows students to focus on learning by addressing the core difficulties that lie at the heart of autism. These include problems with rigid thinking, managing uncertainty and change, social interaction, and understanding and managing emotions.

We focus on developing the key skills of communication, cognition, independence, physical development and self-help, all transferrable skills that equip children and young people for life beyond the school.
