Helping Our Pupils Emotions

HOPE is  a project that offers emotional wellbeing support to children and families in our Esteem academies. 

The Hope Project has been developed over the past five years and has positive outcomes for children that have an emotional need for support.  The Hope project trains school staff to understand the mental health of young people and enhance their supportive, listening skills.  This provision delivered in school complements a whole school approach to positive health and psychological wellbeing.  The project offers a safe space in an environment the child feels comfortable.  This has additional benefits such as the adults’ familiarity with the child and family which aids the trusting relationship. 

Members of the FASST Team have been trained by Rachel Raynor at The Burden Basket to deliver this project to young people over a number of weeks. Wherever possible the sessions will be held in school during the normal school day.

As HOPE practitioners, we receive monthly supervision from either Rachel or one of her team, to ensure that we are supported to continue to support children and families effectively
