Welcome to

Freshfield Primary School

‘Committed to Excellence: we inspire, grow and thrive together.’

Team Around the School

The Team Around the School (a Sefton pilot project) aims to foster collaboration among various stakeholders, including Early Help workers, an Educational Psychologist, Inclusion Consultant,  School health Practitioner, School Staff and Parents, to collectively support the well-being and academic success of our children.


 Key objectives include:


  • Holistic Support: Ensuring children receive comprehensive and early support by addressing both academic and non-academic needs.
  • Early Intervention: Identifying and addressing challenges early on, preventing potential issues from escalating.
  • Individualised Care: Tailoring support based on the unique needs of each student, recognizing that different children require different forms of assistance.
  • Enhanced Communication: Facilitating open and effective communication between teachers, parents, and other team members to create a cohesive support network.
  • Resource Sharing: Maximising the use of available resources within the school and community to provide a wide range of support services.
  • Inclusive Environment: Promoting inclusivity and understanding, fostering a culture where all students feel valued and supported.
  • Collaborative Problem-Solving: Working together to identify challenges, devise strategies, and implement interventions to overcome obstacles to a child’s success.


In essence, the Team Around the School approach seeks to create a collaborative ecosystem that addresses the diverse needs of our children and enhances the overall educational experience.
