North Star Outreach operates from NS82° school site
North Star Outreach
Our remit is to provide effective early intervention and work with colleagues in mainstream primary schools to support and manage children identified as having Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs.
Effective intervention is defined as the early identification of concerns, early assessment and early support. Working together we aim to advise and support schools to plan and implement provision so that children with SEMH improve their overall outcomes, attendance and engagement.
Working collaboratively with schools allows us to individually tailor the provision required with the aim of enabling all children to achieve their full potential and develop the resilience and behaviours needed to succeed within a mainstream setting.
Helping children with SEMH improve their overall
Who is Eligible
Based in the North of Bristol, North Star 82° is a Primary School that caters for pupils with SEMH needs. Pupils who have difficulties with their emotional and social development may have limited social skills and find it difficult to make and sustain healthy relationships. These difficulties may be displayed through the young person becoming withdrawn or isolated, as well as through challenging, disruptive or disturbing behaviour.
SEMH can manifest as difficulties relating to problems of mood (anxiety or depression), problems of conduct (oppositional defiance and more severe conduct problems including aggression), self-harm, substance abuse, eating disorders or physical symptoms that are medically unexplained. In addition to this some of pupils may have recognised disorders such as attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD), attachment disorder, or generalised anxiety disorders.
