Schools were already reporting increasing numbers of pupils struggling with anxiety prior to the pandemic – and those numbers have risen post lockdowns. These struggles can range from school based avoidance anxiety through to an apparent refusal to engage with learning tasks to youngsters becoming highly dysregulated and engaging in potentially dangerous behaviours.
As with all the pastoral network sessions, this one will blend theory with practice so that participants leave feeling upskilled and empowered to even better support their pupils. This will include looking at techniques from CBT and solution focused therapy which can be adapted for the school environment.
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’
