Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH)

View our Mental Health Policy (May 2016)

Some children may have emotional needs and/or social problems that interfere with their own ability to learn effectively. In some instances, the difficulties they experience may cause disruption to the learning of other children or young people.

Social difficulties, in this context, occur when students have problems managing interactions with others in school effectively and appropriately. They may have difficulty making the necessary adjustments to conform to the expectations of others in a variety of settings.

There are many difficulties and conditions falling under SEMH. By clicking on the links below, you can access leaflets on some of the common mental health problems.
