The Oasis are here to support all the children and their parents/carers around a range of issues.
We can help support families with debt, emotional worries, domestic violence issues, advice around parenting and other worries.
The kettle is always on in the Oasis with a friendly welcome from the team to talk things through in a safe, confidential space.
We can also support with attendance, safeguarding and emotional wellbeing. You can ring, pop into school or approach the team on the playground before and after school.
The Child’s Voice
The voice of the children at Meadowfield is our priority. We believe that children should always be heard and be listened to. We offer an open door policy in the Oasis so that children can pop in whenever they want in order to share their worries, concerns and also their good news with us!
If a child feels that they cannot come to the Oasis independently then we have a “worry box” where they can post a written slip about what is on their mind. We check the box once a day and follow up the worries with chats, restorative conversations and conversations with parents/carers if needed.
If a child is struggling emotionally or have an issue that needs extra time to work through then they may be referred for targeted interventions with a member of the Oasis team.
The Oasis can work on areas such as a child’s self confidence, anxiety, resilience and help with bereavement and loss to name but a few.
The Oasis team work with a range of services and professionals using a holistic approach to get the best outcomes for our children and their families.
Services we work with include:
CAMHS, Debt charities, Counsellors, Cluster, Forward Leeds, Health such as GP’s and Health Visitors.
We are all trained designated staff for child protection. We follow safeguarding and child protection policies and procedures to ensure that our children are kept safe. If we have concerns about a child then we may seek advice from Social Care.
If you require any support from a member of our team, please call 0113 3230010 or find us in the playground for a chat.
