Social, Emotional and Mental Health Support at MGJS


It is important to remember that all of us have mental health, sometimes we have good mental health, sometimes we don’t. MGJS supports all pupils through SEMH at all levels from a few tears to more profound issues. Our training ranges from whole staff training from outside agencies - anxiety training from Child and Mental Health Services (CAMHS) for example - to specifically trained staff.


Mrs Stacey has been trained by Educational Psychologists to ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant) level and is able to support and advise regarding a wide range of issues including; self-esteem, behaviour, anger management, loss and bereavement. Sessions may be individual or in a group, usually in six week blocks.


Our Pupil Mentor (Miss O’Driscoll) works with children that are in need of some help with any anxieties, fears or phobias. She has worked in this area for 8 years now and is qualified in many disciplines such as NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), Hypnotherapy and coaching to name but a few. If children are referred then she will endeavour to see them as quickly as possible. Referrals are made by staff if they feel support is needed or you, as parents and carers, can refer directly.


Mrs Stacey, who is also our Family Link, is the lead for SEMH so please do speak to her if you have any concerns. She can be contacted by phoning the school office or email (which is a secure and private email address).
