Trinity Academy Newcastle provides education for children with social-emotional and mental health difficulties in Newcastle.
The Sanctuary is a new therapeutic provision developed by Trinity Academy Newcastle. It provides bespoke education to children and young people who have faced past experiences around trauma and mental health. By building a firm understanding of a child's needs from the start, we can develop a combined package of education and therapeutic practices to help your child have a positive future.
The Sanctuary will provide an environment of nurture and safety, helping reduce the stress levels placed on the child and enabling them to be able to fully engage in learning. We will then use our therapeutic approach in every interaction to build strong personal relationships, helping our children feel both listened to and accepted unconditionally. Using this strong connection, we can help our learners co-regulate their emotions assisting them to build new positive behaviour which they can use to regain control of their emotions. Then, by praising positive behaviours and listening non judgementally, we can help learners gain a deeper understanding of their emotions and feeling, enabling them to not act using previous behaviours but using past experiences to respond.
