  • To support pupils ‘social and emotional development and promote independence in a safe, secure, challenging environment employing strategies to recognise and reward achievement
  • To support the learning of individuals and groups of pupils through the provision of the well-being curriculum and to act as a role model, setting high expectations
  • To observe, record and support the social and emotional development of pupils to identify individual needs and difficulties and to feed back to pupils in relation to their progress and achievement
