WISH Outreach Interventions
Once schools have been granted access to the service, and where it is felt appropriate, the WISH Outreach service will provide a bespoke pathway of support for children with the aim of enabling pupils to remain in their mainstream educational setting.
Currently, WISH Outreach offers the following pathways of support: –
- This is aimed at children who struggle to succeed in school, often through a combination of factors such as anxiety, low self-esteem, poor peer relationships, struggling to take responsibility for their choices and a lack of emotional regulation. By helping them overcome these challenges and accept that success is not always the outcome we look to build a more resilient child.
- This pathway offers support to children with any form of anxiety, work related, social, separation or non-specific anxieties.
Emotional Regulation Pathway
- Where children are finding managing their emotions a challenge, we will support them with a range of strategies to help them.
Self Esteem Pathway
- Many children struggle with low self-esteem, by delivering a range of activities to build confidence and promote positive feelings of self-worth, we aim to improve self-esteem.
Social Skills and Communication Pathway
- For some pupils, everyday social interactions can be challenging. Through small group and 1:1 intervention we will develop their social skills and peer relationships.
Classroom Coping and Engagement Pathway
- Often students referred into the WISH Outreach team are simply finding the classroom environment overwhelming or difficult to engage with. By building a positive relationship with trusted adults we can reintroduce pupils back into their learning environment using a graduated approach.
The WISH Outreach team draws from a range of resources to offer these pathways of support. Based upon THRIVE and Nurture principles we look to offer a bespoke pathway for each child that accesses the service.
