We are committed to improving the well-being of children and staff.  Staff at The Forum Centre have all completed some form of mental health training in order to meet the support needs of our children.  The training provided includes Education Psychologist supervision, STEPS therapeutic thinking, Trauma informed schools practitioner on site (Jo Herald).

The staff wellbeing group takes place every three weeks to make sure the school is in the best position to support our staff.
