Bloemfontein Primary School provides a nurturing environment for children and we passionately believe that children will only achieve academically if they feel safe, happy and secure. It is therefore, necessary to remove any social and emotional barriers to learning through high quality interactions, consistent rules and expectations and interventions. A child may need additional support through interventions including Listening Matters, Talk Boost, Lunchtime groups and small support groups. We also link closely to outside agencies in order to access specialised support for children including CAMHS, Educational Psychologist, Behaviour intervention Team and Counseling Service.
Bloemfontein Primary School ensures that an up to date medical register is kept in a central position and updated on a regular basis. Medical plans are kept for children who require them, including details of the children’s symptoms, medication and other relevant information. All staff attend basic first aid training and an additional four members of staff have attended higher level training and are qualified ‘first aiders’. Staff also receive additional medical training relating to administrating inhalers and insulin for diabetic children. Through close links with the School Nurse children and parents have access to health checks including height, weight, hearing, eye tests and support on nutrition and diet.
Bloemfontein Primary School ensures that provisions are put in place for children who find social interactions and unstructured times difficult. This includes lunchtime lego groups, games clubs and small group social sessions. Children are provided with clear targets, reward systems and allocated specific members of staff who provide support and direction. Links with outside agencies are utilised including CAMHS, Behaviour Team and Counseling Services.
