SHACK stands for Super Happy and Calm Kids. It is an outdoor space near the climbing frame and garden. In Spring 2022, it underwent a revamp with new furniture, soft furnishings and decorations to make it a warm and welcoming place for everyone.
It has a table and chairs for children to play games, colour and chat at lunchtime clubs. A comfy sofa and armchair with cushions and blankets add to it being an inviting space for pupils to meet with the Care Team and emotional wellbeing practitioner and outside agencies to talk about their feelings in a calm, safe space. There are games, books and soft toys in there too and it is a space used by children from Reception to Year 6.
Lunchtime clubs are held at The SHACK. These include Headstart meetings, Young Carers’ friendship group, mindful colouring and Lego.
