Place2Be has arrived!

We are delighted to welcome Julia Barker to our Biddy Ave team.


Julia is the project manager for Place2Be at our school and she will be based in the office by the year 1 entrance on Thursdays and Fridays. 


Joining Julia, on site, will be four Place2Be workers who will support the children at various times of the day.


The team will work in school offering children:

  • One-to-one counselling with a trained counsellor (short- and long-term), tailored to each child's needs
  • Place2Talk, a drop in/self-referral service open to all pupils
  • Group work on issues such as transition into secondary school, bereavement, friendship and self-esteem.


They may also offer other services:

  • Parents, grandparents and carers: counselling and support services
  • School staff: support, consultation and training
  • Partnership working with statutory agencies, voluntary sector partners and community groups


We are delighted to offer this service and hope that all parents/carers support their children in using it.
