Self-esteem is rightly identified as being a key area of need for those pupils requiring support around their pastoral needs. But what exactly do we mean by ‘self-esteem’? And how can staff effectively build it, especially with those pupils who can present with quite significant levels of need? What beyond ‘praise’ and ‘catching them being good’ is proven to be effective?
This session will consider self esteem as having 3 core components – a sense of value; of competence; and of control. Building on this, we will explore practical strategies that can address each of these, both within pastoral support sessions and also transferrable to the classroom.
Each session will be a blend of theory and current research with proven, practical ideas to take away to support you as you support your pupils. People will also be encouraged to share ideas so that by the end of the programme, everyone will have added a range of strategies for their toolkits.
Each session will also include a short section on wellbeing to help colleagues replenish their ‘tanks’
