If you feel you would benefit from the above support please click the leaflet above to self-refer to the service. Any referrals will be discussed with staff supporting your child in school in the first instance.

Should you have any concerns or queries about your child, please ensure you find out what support is available within school. Students have access to a range of services within the school which can be accessed via their Director of Learning.

Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing Pathways
At Seaford Head School we have a huge range of support for all students. The diagram below shows the support available.


We have a tiered approach to support young people making sure we can give support at the right level.  For targeted and enhanced support students are usually referred in by year group teams, but students as well as parents and carers can also email to get support for their child.


All our specific therapeutic services are confidential and operate under our 1-1 Policy below.


1 to 1 Policy


As a school, we understand that finding the right support for your child is not only important, it is essential. We have therefore put together some useful resources for parents and carers to access should they feel they require support. Some of these are local organisations and others are national charities. Either way, each contact should be able to offer you the advice, support and understanding that you need.
