Well-being at Glenwood School

At Glenwood School we are committed to ensuring all children have the right/most appropriate individual support for their emotional health and wellbeing.

The wellbeing team at Glenwood School consists of a Well-being Manager, Family Liaison, ELSA’s, trainee therapists and student social workers. We meet regularly to discuss what help can be offered to pupils and/or their family and a plan of support is created and offered.
