SERIS  (Supporting Emotional Resilience In Schools)


SERIS is unique to Barrow and we are very lucky to be able to offer the children this service.  In our school we have a staff referral system, but also pupils are able to speak to our SERIS worker when they feel they need to. If you have any concerns about your child, you can contact Mrs Leith, to discuss your concerns.


Sometimes life for your child can be difficult, they may have had a row with their brother, their pet may have died or they may find relationships in school difficult.  It really helps them if they have someone who they can talk things through with. At St Pius X, we have a well-trained member of staff, Mrs Leith to help our pupils deal with any problems or concerns they have. She is here to help the pupils overcome emotional barriers to learning.


Mrs Leith has received lots of training, including anger management, counselling skills, young minds and mental health, self harm and suicide and loss, separation and bereavement (to name a few). She is also trained in safeguarding issues and works with outside agencies.
