Unlocking Potential (UP)
Unlocking Potential (UP) are a children’s mental health charity who work collaboratively as a traded service with our school to support children and young people with social, emotional, and mental health needs (SEMH).
The School’s Programme is a multidisciplinary service led by a Therapy Team Manager who is based in school and who organises the delivery of a range of therapeutic interventions and wellbeing activities for children. The wider team includes child psychotherapists, creative art therapists, occupational and speech and language therapists. The aim of the service is to provide flexible, timely and targeted interventions to support emotional wellbeing across the school community.
Unlocking Potential work closely with children, school staff, parents and caregivers to enable all children in school to feel understood, reduce anxieties, support with behaviour and support children’s positive relationship building. They provide a Speak UP service where children can self-refer to talk to the Therapy Team Manager at a playtime or lunchtime if they have a worry or something they need help with.
