Place2Be - Place2Talk Service
I am writing to let you know about Whitehall Primary School’s work with Place2Be, a national charity supporting schools to improve the confidence and wellbeing of children and young people.
Place2Be provides emotional and therapeutic support to pupils, families and staff in more than 300 schools nationwide.
It gives pupils a space to express themselves through talking and creative work, and think about any worries they might have. Place2Be also provides support for parents and staff too.
One of the most popular aspects of this service is Place2Talk. It is open to all pupils, and they can make an appointment to spend 15 minutes with a trained counsellor, either by themselves or with a friend. On average, about a third of pupils in Place2Be’s schools take advantage of this service every year. Pupils often talk about friendships or any worries they may have.
Unless we hear otherwise from you, the school and Place2Be will assume that all pupils have their parent/carers’ permission to come to Place2Talk. We also assume you are happy for the school to tell Place2Be your child’s name, date of birth, year group, gender and ethnicity. This information is stored securely and used solely to evaluate Place2Be’s service.
If would like to find out more, or would prefer that your child does not use this service please email Francesca Johnson (Place2Be School Project Manager) firstname.lastname@example.org or ring 028 529 3813. She is also very happy to answer any further questions you might have.
