Welcome to The Place2Be...
Hello my name is Sarah Dosomah and I would like to introduce myself to you. I look after the Place2Be service here in Grangetown Primary school. We are a friendly service with the aim to support your child’s emotional well being in school through specialist therapeutic support. One thing we know about children is that when they are happier they learn better and happy children are also kinder to each other. As a service we are guided by our values of compassion, creativity, integrity and perseverance. At the heart of everything we do is the child as we endeavour to see the world through their eyes. We also understand that happy parents make happy children and so we extend our support to all the family. I hope these pages will give you a flavour of who we are and what we do and I look forward to working with children, parents and teachers over the coming year.
Sarah Dosomah works with Place2Be, the UK's leading children's mental health charity providing in-school support and expert training to help improve the emotional wellbeing of pupils, families, teachers and school staff.
How Place2Be helps pupils
Pupils can find help with friendship issues and other worries by choosing to visit Place2Talk. Children can book to see a counsellor on their lunch or break time and attend on their own or in a group.
Place2Be also works with children individually and in small groups, offering regular time-tabled support for those who will benefit most, working closely with parents and school staff.
There is a dedicated Place2Be room inside the school where children can go to express and think about their worries, through talking, creative work and play. This helps children to find new ways of coping with difficulties so they don’t get in the way of friendships or learning.
