Social Emotional Mental Health (SEMH)

Social Emotional Mental Health (SEMH)



We are part of a service for Children and Young People with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) across the Bradford district.

As a team of Specialist Teachers and Practitioners we work within the Social, Communication, Interaction, & Learning Team (SCIL Team) alongside the other specialist areas of Communication and Interaction (including Autism), Cognition &   Learning and Early Years.  For full details of our offer, please visit  About SCIL Team 

Our offer focuses on equipping mainstream schools/settings to identify and effectively support children and young people with Special Education Needs and Disabilities through high quality teaching, reasonable adjustments and additional provision. The offer includes SEND Specialist SupportSupport for Individual Children and Training.    

Below is a collection of documents which have been carefully designed to help & support staff addressing SEMH needs in schools and settings.
