Parent Child Attachment Play

This is usually offered as a 10 weeks’ programme but lengths may vary depending on need.

Parent Child Attachment Play is a gentle, play-based approach aimed at improving the attachment quality of the parent-child relationship using attachment mechanisms and child-oriented play with parent/ carers and their children. It can be delivered with groups, in one-to-ones and through a home visiting model.

This programme is suitable for parents who want to develop existing bonds with their child, or parents and carers of children with attachment difficulties. The programme can be a standalone one for parents/carers who want to develop relationships with their child or can be paired with specialist parent training and behaviour assessment and support for children with more complex needs.

The principal and leadership team, well supported by the Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust, have provided strong leadership, which has had a positive impact on the school’s effectiveness. As a result, there have been improvements in all areas, most noticeably in pupils’ behaviour and attitudes, the curriculum and in the wider opportunities for pupils.
