Blue Smile works in partnership with a number of primary schools across Cambridgeshire.
We currently have nine ‘Partner Schools’, mostly in areas of socioeconomic need, where we offer a full “Blue Smile Day” once a week.
We provide a team of staff, therapists, trainee therapists and mentors to work with the whole school community, promoting and supporting a whole-school approach to mental health, reducing stigma and promoting wellbeing.
The Partner School service includes one to one therapy with between 12 and 18 pupils every week, groups to children with similar needs, and work with parents, carers and teachers on goals and strategies for helping the child with their emotions.
We subsidise this service and use our Partner Schools as practitioner training and development hubs.
