What is the Heart room?
The Heart room is a place in the heart of the school. The purpose of this room and the role of Mrs Tugwell is to provide emotional support to all our children who need it.
Mrs Tugwell provides bespoke support for pupils with additional emotional or behavioural needs. This includes a range of group sessions or individual sessions. Some of the group sessions include:
Play Doh Therapy
The Heart Room is also available for all children to access throughout the day if they want to.
The children in school have a very good relationship with Mrs Tugwell and the heart room is a trusted environment where children feel safe and secure.
Wesley, the school's wellbeing dog, also spends a lot of the time in the heart room to support the children too.
The children love him very much!
