Ark Elvin Academy works with Place2Be, the UK's leading children's mental health charity providing in-school support and expert training to help improve the emotional wellbeing of pupils, families, teachers and school staff.

How Place2Be helps pupils

Pupils can find help with friendship issues and other worries by choosing to visit Place2Talk. Children and young people can book to see a counsellor on their lunch or break time and attend on their own or in a group.

Place2Be also works with children and young people individually and in small groups, offering regular time-tabled support for those who will benefit most, working closely with parents and school staff.

The school has a dedicated Place2Be room where students can meet with a counsellor and talk about the challenges they are experiencing. This helps them to engage productively in their own learning and develop positive relationships.

Other support from Place2Be

Place2Be also offers support and advice for parents and carers, as well as teachers and school staff. Please do get in touch with our School Project Manager, Jemima Osubu, to find out more.

“He has made amazing progress since attending Place2Be in Year 7. Then his attitude and behaviour were really challenging. Now he is a lovely young man who can surprise you with acts of kindness.” – Head of Year 10

“Without Place2Be’s support in Years 7 & 8 I might have chosen a different path as I used to hang out with a group who often refused to go to school. Since then I have changed friendship groups and I am much happier and more positive” – Year 11 student reflecting on the impact of his Place2Be support
