SEND, Inclusion and Vulnerable Learners
June 25 @ 3:45 pm - 6:00 pm
Join the Springfields Academy’s third Chartered College of Teaching hub meeting for anyone involved in education who has an interest in SEND, Inclusion and Vulnerable Learners. Everyone is invited to join and shape the network regardless of the age, stage or phase that you teach. Come and join likeminded colleagues, forge new relationships and engage in thinking, dialogue and discussion.
This interactive workshop will give a brief introduction to the impact of trauma on children’s brain development. Through applying critical thinking to existing systems and language around emotions and behaviour, we will focus on the hope and gain practical strategies in which to support our children and young people. Included in this will be an introduction to breathe 1st – a system and approach used in Mike’s previous schools and in many schools around the UK.
