Mental Health and Wellbeing
We will also need to support families with their mental health and wellbeing. Information will
be given about where to access support for mental health. The guidance for Mental health and behaviour in
schools, will be looked at
and support given to those in need. We will also be given mental health and wellbeing support on our website and social media, making sure that all parents/ carers also have our email address and
phone number, so they are able to discuss any issues that they may come across. We will be keeping our therapeutic approach that we have already been implementing as this is part of our ethos. Giving
parents/ carers our top tips for our approach that can be used within the home and will support all children at this time.
This website has
support for mental health for families
In the new guidance
Coronavirus (COVID-19): Safeguarding in Schools, Colleges and Other Providers, it states that we do not need to complete the usual day to day calls to check why there has been non-attendance for each
session that they should be attending previous to COVID-19. However, there should be a follow up for children that had been expected to attend and had made arrangements for them to be at the setting.
Parents/ carers should confirm emergency contacts and ad own details in case of emergency.
Children moving from
setting to another should make sure where possible to inform the setting of any safeguarding needs, EHCP, PEPS, or behaviour plans to support the child this can be done via a telephone call or email
with password encryption. If we have not received any information then the DSLO or management will call the previous provision if this is not possible then the local authority will be called to find
out any information that we may need to support the child within Woodcroft Preschool. This should be done before a child has arrived, where this is not possible as soon as reasonably
