Social-emotional prevention and support in Primary School

The social-emotional support and prevention of the Primary School is known to the children as the "SMiLe Team". The work of the "Sozial-Miteinander-Leben-Team" (Social Togetherness Team) is aimed at all pupils of the primary school and their parents. The team also provides advice and support to all school staff.
The core task of the SMiLe team is the prevention of social and emotional difficulties in everyday school life. In case of acute need, it acts as an intervention team. The SMiLe team supports children, parents and teachers in overcoming social-emotional problems and crises. It identifies special social-emotional needs of individual children and target groups and takes preventive measures. It promotes social skills in order to sustainably improve the social climate in the classroom and in the playground. The team members are specially trained for their tasks.
