Our school recently launched the Take Home Tuesday initiative, which is open to all of our families from 2.30pm each Tuesday. There are stalls of clothes and shoes (including non-uniform) for people to take for free, and we are aiming to grow this so that more items e.g., toys, can be made available to take for free each Tuesday too.
At Walter Halls we value the whole child and do whatever we can to support child welfare as well as academic success. Children who are happy, safe, secure and supported learn best of all.
Jodie Burton is available to support our families with a variety of issues, such as: attendance, behaviour, relationships and any general concerns around family welfare.
Kerrie Chandler supports children to feel safe and happy in school, she runs a 'Time to Talk' service for children who can self-refer to her as well as therapeutic play sessions for selected individuals.
Lee Neal works with individual children, small groups and supports in classrooms. He supports children with additional needs, as well as behavioural needs.
OUR PHILSOPHY IS TO BE OPEN AND HONEST AND BE AVAILABLE FOR FAMILIES AND CHILDREN TO HAVE SOMEONE TO TALK TO.
