Working Partnerships

Trauma Informed Schools UK (TISUK)

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.
