Place2be are a counselling service which runs in Longstone Primary

What difference does Place2Be make in your child’s school?
Place2Be is a national charity working in over 257 UK schools to improve the confidence and emotional wellbeing of children. We help children to develop resilience by supporting them when they are experiencing challenging life issues and helping them to develop self-confidence and lifelong coping skills. When they are supported in this way, they are able to learn more easily and that means less worry for parents.

How we help children
All pupils can find help with friendship issues and other worries, by choosing to visit Place2Talk. These short sessions are held at break times on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and are open to individuals and to groups.

Place2Be also works with children one-to-one and in small groups, offering regular time-tabled support for those who will benefit most. The school will often refer children for this service.

How we help families
We routinely meet with parents to discuss any concerns they may have about their children. Place2Be also run A Place for Parents, offering adults counselling support for any issues they may have.

How we help schools
Place2Be supports teachers and school staff members to think through the emotional needs of children, and advises and supports the school leadership which helps the whole school to thrive.

How Place2Be works
There is a special Place2Be room inside the school where children can go to express and think about their worries, through talking, creative work and play. Adults that are qualified to work therapeutically, called School Project Managers, support this process, helping children to find new ways of coping with difficulties so they don’t get in the way of friendships or learning.
