With the child at its heart, The Harbour Programme adopts an holistic partnership approach to supporting children with social, emotional, and mental health (SEMH) needs. Alongside the child’s family and home school, we work with them to enable them to succeed long term with mainstream provision.

This community provision is a multi-professional outreach programme, for a maximum of 12 children within Foundation Stage and KS1. Aspects of the programme, and the child’s Individual Learning Pathway, may involve visiting us to access a specific activity or provision.

Children participate on a dual-roll basis, via a referral process. Whilst in the Programme, children have access to specialist, multi-agency support alongside a personalised, strengths-based curriculum founded in a nurturing and therapeutic context.

Our key role is to facilitate a greater understanding of the needs of the child, enabling greater access to learning in their home school environment. We focus on:

  • Emotional understanding and regulation, resilience and independence
  • Developing key attachments
  • Building child and family engagement
  • Developing the disposition and skills needed for successful learning
  • Personal development
  • Promoting a sense of belonging in the child’s home school
Parental engagement is an essential part of The Harbour. Parents have regular opportunities to talk to members of our team through activities, informal catch ups, joint review meetings and support to access other services.

We recognise that for some parents it is reassuring to meet other families with similar experiences, and informal opportunities for this mutual support are built into the Programme.
