Support for Parents


The Sunshine Therapy Room has a holistic approach to supporting children with their behaviour and communication. For this to be as effective as it can be, that involves us working closely with parents and creating a support network together.  

When your child is identified as needing support from the Sunshine Team, one of the members will be in contact with you to discuss your child's individual needs and what further support they can offer.  This might be in the form of a workshop or set of interventions within the Sunshine Room, run by the team, resources you can use at home to support behaviour, communication, family counselling or, could be working alongside external agencies for further support and guidance.  

Currently, in school, we can offer the following workshops for parents:

Working with pupils with SEMH needs - November 2023

What next ? Ideas of additional professionals that can help and advise - December 2023

To find out more about these programmes and how to book, please contact the Sunshine team either via Class Dojo or by email ( and someone will be in contact with you to provide further details.

Below are some useful links and information leaflets regarding therapy, aces, trauma and SEMH support you can access to help you to help your child further.
