Emotional Wellbeing Team


At Water Meadows we have support from a member of the Canterbury and Coastal Emotional Wellbeing Team who is from a team of four Emotional Wellbeing Practitioners, employed by our local NHS trust. Their role has a variety of aspects, and there are different ways they can offer support to the school. 

This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Parent Intervention (1:1 or Group Sessions) for Child Anxiety or Child Behaviour
  • Parent Workshops
  • Staff Training
  • Signposting

Further information about the Emotional Wellbeing service for current parents can be found on the ‘Wellbeing’ tab on ‘The Hub’ on Weduc.
