A first for Longmoor
In January Longmoor Primary School, Liverpool became the first school in Merseyside to start working with award winning children’s charity Place2Be.
Place2Be provides school-based emotional and mental health services to children aged 4-14, supporting 94,000 children and working in 235 primary and secondary schools across the UK.
Place2Be helps children to cope with wide-ranging issues including bullying, bereavement, domestic violence, addiction and family breakdown. By supporting children when they’re younger, Place2Be helps prevent problems from becoming more complex and damaging mental health issues in later life.
To celebrate the end of the first term since Place2Be and Longmoor have worked together, Place2Be CEO Catherine Roche visited the school.
During her visit she met with some of the children and parents, discussing the benefits of the service and watched a performance by the children at Longmoor who have written a song about Place2Be which will be adopted by the charity as their theme tune.
