The overall purpose of the Pupil Development Centre is to promote the emotional development of the whole school community. By dealing with issues such as raising self esteem, improving social skills and managing negative feelings, the hope is to give children strategies to manage a more positive approach to learning.
The Pupil Development Centre offers group and individual sessions to pupils who are in need of support with the social and emotional aspects of learning, school life or their home life.
