Trauma Informed Schools

Trauma Informed Schools Practice 

Beechwood is a ‘Trauma Informed School’.  As a Trust we understand and endeavour to reduce the negative effects and impact of trauma experienced by our pupils.  We support our pupils who suffer with trauma or mental health problems and whose behaviour may act as a barrier to learning. 

Within the Trust we follow a Ready, Respectful and Safe approach based on Trauma Informed Schools (TIS) practice. Trust wide, and whole school training, ensures that each school is a nurturing and supportive environment which supports children emotionally and socially so that they are emotionally ready to learn. See the Trust Inclusion Policy and SEND and Inclusion Policy.
