At Laira Green we are passionate about providing the best possible opportunities for all our children. We are committed to a trauma informed approach and work closely with parents and other agencies to ensure that our children get the best possible support. We have an inclusive ethos where every family is welcome. Whatever the barriers to learning the school works in a positive partnership with parents and carers to overcome these barriers.
We are a Trauma and Mental Health Informed School. Ms Frost is our Mental Health Lead. This enables us to support children who suffer with trauma or mental health problems and whose troubled behaviour often acts as a barrier to learning.
