Bridgelea is a nurturing school, whose ethos is based on the 6 principles of nurture.
We believe children need to feel safe and secure in order to learn and make the most of their potential.
The Retreat Team
The Retreat Team supports children throughout the day, delivering interventions and developing SEMH skills to support their ability to understand and manage themselves. Children access the Retreat Room through a referral process via themselves or staff. Sometimes children need to access the space quickly and staff support this with distraction and diversion techniques as a way to calm situations and provide a safe base.
