Hafan is used as a resource for pupils who have social and emotional difficulties. Pupils can be referred to Hafan if they are dealing with anxiety, bereavement or other social and emotional issues. The pupils referred to Hafan are often struggling with challenge of the mainstream setting due to emotional issues. As such the ethos of Hafan is to raise self-esteem through a nurturing environment and reward all positive behaviour (but the department will also use sanctions in line with the school behaviour policy).
Hafan runs a weekly walking group. The aim of the group is to improve pupil confidence and self-esteem. Pupils will be identified through liaising with parents, the pastoral team and other members of staff. The programme will be run by the Hafan walking leader. Pupils with low attendance will be also be targeted for this project.
In the summer term Hafan will run a gardening group. This will involve a cross curricular gardening project. Pupils will take be identified by the Year Leader, Pastoral Manager /Hafan. The aim of the project is to develop teambuilding skills, communication skills and reinforce positive behaviour expectations
