The school employs a full-time Psychologist. She works directly with pupils and parents. She also supports teachers, learning support staff and social education staff in developing strategies and plans for pupils. She is also available to support pupils in their transition away from Breckenbrough.
The ethos of the school also provides a therapeutic environment. This is particularly fostered in the Art Department which has a garden attached for quiet and reflection.
All staff are skilled in understanding and are sympathetic to the issues related to the behaviours of the pupils.
Where appropriate additional therapeutic support, such as occupational and speech and language therapy is bought in to address particular needs of pupils.
