Managing difficult conversations

How to manage teacher to pupil conversations safely

Target audience:

Open to all school staff, especially useful for NQT/RQT teaching staff, or new to post LSA/TAs.

You will be contacted post booking for further information on job role and areas of experience to enable the trainer to make sure the sessions are bespoke for those attending.

Aim:

Develop a greater awareness of pastoral care responsibilities, how to develop confidence in dealing with difficult disclosure from pupils, developing a bank of supportive phrases and strategies to appropriately manage situations.

Sheila will work with delegates to understand early warning signs in young people, and how to build effective trust an rapport. With these building blocks in place, teaching staff can then feel increased confidence in having pastoral conversations.

Time will be given to discussing appropriate conversation phrasing and structures. Delegates should come willing to share scenarios or questions to maximise the potential of this session.

 

There is a second opportunity to access this training in May. Please select the appropriate date from the 4th column in this row.

Mindfulness for primary schools

Target audience:

Primary school Pastoral leads / workers / ELSAs

 

Trainer

Jasmine Reid – Training Coordinator

 

Aim/s:

Are you a school that wants to implement an innovative and holistic approach to helping children unlock their learning potential? A key function of RelaxEd is getting children 'brain ready’ to learn. The RelaxED course is suitable for KS1 and KS2 - it promotes resilience and confidence, and gives children the ability to actively engage the pre-frontal cortex and hippocampus thereby promoting learning, processing and crucially the retention of learning.  

Our specifically structured award-winning program has been created for teachers and teaching staff and supports the PHSE curriculum, particularly the SMSC and character curriculums.  Using bite-sized exercises that can be easily integrated into the school day, children are encouraged to see their strengths and their aspirations are supported.  Regular practice of relaxation is proven to promote positive behaviour, it also improves emotional literacy, concentration, self-esteem, anger and anxiety issues and social interaction. 

This one-day RelaxED training uses research-based techniques such as mindfulness and sensory awareness exercises, physical and mental relaxation, peer- and self-massage, movement, stretches and breathing exercises which help pupils to develop a range of social and emotional skills which enhance their personal and academic skill-set.  

All resources, planning and support is provided; teachers who are using RelaxEd in schools with great success deliver the training.  

 “I have been using Relax Kids in my classroom as part of our PSHE sessions since September. We lie down and listen to the track and then discuss how it has made us feel. Initially the children were a little embarrassed and didn’t know how to relax and take on board what was said during the track. Now they ask ‘When do we get to lie down again?’ They really enjoy these sessions and their comments have moved on from ‘feeling happy’ to ‘feeling joyful’. It’s proven very useful for developing our vocabulary and providing the children with an opportunity to explore their own personalities.”
