Zones of Regulation
At our school we have a whole school approach called the zones of Regulation. The zones of regulation is all about identifying our feelings and being able to control them in an acceptable manner. Every class has the four coloured zones up for children to place their names on so that members of staff and their peers can see how they are feeling. Zones of Regulation Interventions are also carried out for those who are struggling to control their feelings and with this added support they can build up a bank of strategies to help them now and in adult life.
For more information on this you can click the link to a video on the introduction to the zones of regulation and see the attached files on the vocabulary used and how the feelings link to the zones.
Child and Family Support at Kingshurst Primary School
If you and your family are experiencing difficulties such as Domestic abuse, Substance or Alcohol misuse, financial problems, mental health problems, imprisonment, worries about your child or finding parenting difficult, then we may be able to support you.
Jenny Atkins (Assistant Inclusion Manager) and Louise McNulty (Child and Family Support Worker) are here to listen and support you with any difficulties you may be having so that you are not facing them alone. We are here to offer you non-judgemental support and advice to help you and your family move forward.
Jenny works Monday-Wednesday 8.30am-16.30pm and Louise works Wednesday-Friday from 8.30am-16.30pm. We can also be contacted on 0121 788 6510 where we have an answerphone where you can leave us a message.
Although we work in partnership with Children’s Services we are not Social Workers. We are here to help support you to ensure your children have the best start possible. Please get in contact if you need some help and we will be more than happy to offer you an appointment.

child will establish good habits
