The Academy will provide additional support to children and families by working closely with professionals from a variety of agencies. The Academy will continue to build on strong links with the Educational Psychology, Behaviour Support and Educational Welfare services sourced from Cornwall Council. Many of these professionals already have existing relationships with children with special educational or behavioural needs and the on-going use of these services will provide continuity in care.
The Academy will provide CAF leadership and will work alongside the local CAF coordinator. Parental support will be accessed through the academy’s Pupil Parent Liaison Officer. When required, the academy will refer children to Cornwall’s Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS). In additional the Academy will fully support children with pre-existing CAMHS referrals or children who are subject to CAFs held by other services.
The Academy will continue to build upon strong links with the local police force and will utilise the local PCSO to support families in safely dropping off and collecting their children from school. The PCSO will have scheduled direct work with the children through assemblies and class sessions as will the local fire service. These sessions will provide opportunities for the children to learn about the ways in which they can keep safe.
