Decider Skills

After discussions with our school Educational Psychologist around the importance of mental health in children, we were pleased when Guildtown Primary was offered the opportunity to take part in a pilot for the Decider Skills programme.  The Decider Skills is a framework that aims to teach children skills to manage their emotions and wellbeing. 

In August 2023 all primary teachers and support staff attended training, delivered by CAMHS staff.  This session (23/24) all children in P3-7 will be taught the decider skills in class and these will be embedded across their school day by both teaching staff and support staff.
