Group Work

Group sessions are often arranged for older pupils who have previously accessed one-to-one support with the Coach House team.

They focus on various issues relevant to adolescence and BESD.

Topics for the group sessions include;

  • Social skills
  • Emotional literacy
  • Relationships
  • Pathway planning
  • Staying safe
  • Drugs and alcohol
  • Bullying
  • Street crime
  • Gangs

Sessions are led by the Coach House staff, who aim to ensure that the sessions remain safe and supportive. Pupils have made positive reflections regarding their experience of accessing these sessions. Through discussion work pupils often realise that many of their difficulties, anxieties or frustrations are a normal part of adolescence. This realisation often comes as a huge relief.
