At King Edward VI Preparatory School we recognise that for our children to successfully overcome difficulties and achieve everything they are capable of, we must prioritise their wellbeing.  

Our Wellbeing Centre Manager, runs our Wellbeing Centre, which offers a warm and welcoming therapeutic environment for our pupils – a safe place to talk, to reflect, to be listened to and reset. She is supported by three Emotional Literacy Support Assistants (ELSA),  who support across the School, from Early Years to Upper Prep.

Emotional health and emotional wellbeing has become an important area of focus in recent years, and this has been heightened during uncertain and challenging times. The Wellbeing Centre offers a space to accommodate children who are experiencing stress, anxiety or social and emotional concerns. The Centre offers a calm and reflective place to go, for personalised support, to talk about concerns and seek additional help if needed.

In addition, we also offer the following support for our children: 

  • Pastoral/therapeutic support 
  • ELSA
  • Group work  
  • Bereavement Group 
  • Weekly Romsey Young Carers group
  • Youth in Romsey Counsellor
  • Peer Friendship Group – run by pupils
  • Weekly 1:1 small group Outdoor Learning sessions and working with our farm animals
  • Daily breaktime sessions including Midweek Chillout (Meditation/relaxation)
  • Worry post-boxes and books in different departments
