School is a crucial part of every child’s growing up experience. Sometimes if they are experiencing difficulties this can affect their behaviour in the classroom, friendships and ability to learn. This may be effecting the teacher and the whole class.

A training course is available to develop teacher and other school staff understanding of:

  • The impact of trauma and adverse childhood experiences
  • The needs of adopted and fostered children in the classroom
  • The impact of any additional needs, such as Autism or ADHD on children in the classroom.

The course is based on childhood brain development and attachment theories. It will focus on developing understanding and practical strategies to use in the classroom to help regulate children so they can focus on and enjoy learning with their class. It is available as a brief or full day course.

Pupil premium is available for looked after children and those who have been adopted or live with a special guardian and could fund training or support to a child.

Support to a child in school or to staff to develop a package of support is also available.

Please contact us if you would like to discuss a tailor made package for your school.
