Every Child Has Options
Since the launch of ECHO in March 2019, the service has been invaluable for the families of our school community. The range of specialist services from Holistic therapy, behaviour support to specialist counselling is very much needed in this area of Knottingley and addresses the needs and vulnerabilities of our pupils and families.
Staff are professional, approachable and very knowledgeable in their areas of expertise. They respond quickly and this is crucial for the health and well- being of our vulnerable families. The families have all given positive feedback on their experiences with the service and it is clear that there is a desperate need for it to continue. The fact that ECHO is at the centre of the community, easily accessible and quickly accessed has been a lifeline to all. Not only does the service provide support and advice to parents and families, but also staff of the academy.
Since the launch in March, thirteen of our families have accessed the service with positive outcomes for all, impacting greatly on the quality of life for all members of the family.
This is an invaluable service which we must continue.
