Ms Duffin is our Wellbeing Counsellor

“As Wellbeing Counsellor my main duties involve breaking down any barriers to learning, before they have an impact on a child’s progress. Different strategies are used to help the children including, language, art and play therapy. The children are referred to me via Mrs Arnold and class teachers, and staff work in collaboration to ensure a successful outcome for each child. The role is very rewarding and compliments other support roles within the school”

Well Being


At Evelyn CP School we are committed to the well being and mental health of children, staff, parents, governors and the community. We have a well being policy in place which is available from the school office. You can view our Well Being Policy here.

We are currently working towards the ‘Well Being Award For Schools’. Our ‘Well Being Change Team’ (The Smile Team) consists of teaching and non-teaching staff, governors and children. They meet to review our current work and promote initiatives across the school.
