A GRANT of £10,000 has been given to a Weston-super-Mare school to enable it to provide a counselling programme.
The money has been given to Windwhistle Primary School, on the Bournville estate, by Awards For All England.
The school, in Kingsley Road, will run a counselling service for its pupils in conjunction with the Bridge Foundation.
The foundation is based in Bristol, and carries out counselling in a number of schools.
Headteacher Lyn Hunt said: “We are thrilled to receive this grant which will enable us to provide highly-qualified, targeted support to particular children.”
The service will help children whose emotional difficulties are affecting their ability to learn.
