Social Emotional Mental Health

Welcome to SEMH at Amberley Primary School


At Amberley Primary School we believe that Social, Emotional and Mental Health is at the heart of all that we do to ensure that our pupils grow into emotionally intelligent, resilient and considerate individuals who can contribute to and interact with various members of the community.

Please see all sections of the website; curriculum pages, Forest School, Eco Warriors, the School Council, Young Sports Leaders, Amberley Angels, Mindfulness Mates and Wellbeing Ambassadors.


SEMH is at the heart of all that we do at Amberley, however if you feel as though your child needs more individual support, either 1 to 1 sessions or small group interventions outside of the the classroom please contact School who will be more than happy to suggest possible ways forward.

Young Carers


At Amberley Primary School we are committed to supporting all children and ensuring their time in School is one where they learn and grow into well rounded individuals with a good sense of wellbeing. We recognise that many of our children take on additional roles and responsibilities that may impact on this wellbeing. 

A young carer is someone under 18 who may be caring for a family member who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or addiction problems. They often take on practical and / or emotional caring responsibilities that would normally be expected of an adult. Research suggests there are at least 700,000 young carers in the UK but many do not realise they are a young carer.


Young Carers may engage in:

Practical tasks (cooking, housework and shopping)

Physical care (lifting or helping someone use the stairs)

Personal care (dressing, washing, helping with toilet needs)

Managing the family budget (collecting benefits and prescriptions)

Managing medication

Looking after younger siblings

Helping someone communicate.


We know that some Young Carers may need a little extra support to enjoy and do well at School. At Amberley Primary School we are committed to ensuring that all pupils who are Young Carers are identified and supported effectively with their wellbeing.


If you think your child might be a young carer, or could be affected by any of the issues we've highlighted, please contact the School office to make an appointment to speak or meet directly with the Young Carers' Champion, Sharon Hurst.


Any information that is given to us will be treated sensitively and no information will be shared without your knowledge. 


All internal support with be either 1:1 or groups session with Sharon Hurst and some children may work directly with drama therapists etc from Young Carers.
