What is FEIPS?
The Framework for Enhanced Individual Pastoral Support (FEIPS) intervention is a child-led session where a FEIPS practitioner (Miss Nielsen) facilitates a helping conversation using counselling practices. Simply put, it provides children with time to talk.
FEIPS provides the opportunity for children to explore their feelings, empower them to find their own resolutions and build resilience for their future.
How does FEIPS help children?
FEIPS aims to promote emotional well-being in children and young people. By facilitating the child’s problem solving rather than solve the problem for them.
The FEIPS intervention is underpinned by psychological theory and evidence based practice. Practitioners are able to empathise with children and have the capacity to work in a non-judgemental way.
How does FEIPS work?
FEIPS Practitioners work with children on an individual basis. Sessions are usually to be child-led as active listening is central to FEIPS.
Most children will attend up to six sessions, but some children may only require one or two.
Who is the FEIPS Practitioner?
Our trained Practitioner is Miss Nielsen. She liaises regularly with class teachers to discuss children’s emotional well-being and how best they can be supported in the classroom.
Why may my child be chosen?
Your child may be identified by their class teacher as someone who would benefit from one or more FEIPS sessions to enable them to explore their feelings, empower them to find their own resolutions and build resilience for their future. This will help them to make the best possible progress both emotionally and socially.
The involvement of parents in FEIPS work
Parent/carer collaboration and support is vital and consent is always asked before a child begins FEIPS sessions.
Miss Nielsen is happy to talk to you about your child. However, she is unable to discuss the content of the sessions due to confidentiality.
