In order for the TaMHS core offer to work best for each individual school, it is important that schools are aware of the time commitment required for the programme to work at its best and can facilitate this over the 2-year period. The programme involves three consultation meetings (one with the whole school staff), lasting approximately 60 to 90 minutes each.
The school will receive a total of 9 hours of face-to-face input such as training for staff from the Educational Psychology Service, CAMHS Connect and the Education Inclusion Officer for mental health. There will be a 60 to 90 minute evaluation meeting at the end of the 2-year period.
Schools are strongly encouraged to consider whether they are able to facilitate all aspects of the TAMHS core offer over the 2 years, before signing up. If this is not currently possible, we would encourage schools to consider signing up to the programme in the future, when it will be possible to facilitate.
