Event Details

The Green Paper ‘Transforming children and young people’s mental health provision’ sets out the priority to ensure that all schools are adequately supported to build whole school environments and offer support and approaches to ensure every pupil reaches their full potential.

Good mental health and well-being greatly increases our ability to learn and take in new information. Good physical health is assumed to be an important part of our daily lives but mental health often can be forgotten.

When we are in a good place emotionally and socially our mental health and well-being can be nurtured and supported. It allows us to face life’s challenges, make confident life choices, feel good about ourselves and learn confidently.

Why now?

  • 5% of children and young people have a mental health need at some point in their educational life
  • 86% of teachers believe that the job has impacted negatively on their well-being in the last twelve months
  • In September 2020 every school must implement Relationships, Sex and Relationships and Health Education from Early Years to Sixth Form

The day will be split in to four sessions

Session 1: What is mental health and well-being?

  • Why is this so topical?
  • Why is it important for schools to address SEMH needs?

Session 2: Understanding and embedding the new Health Education curriculum

  • What must be taught and when?
  • Health Education within the new Ofsted framework

Session 3: A whole school approach to supporting mental health and well-being

  • Using the Mental Health Standards
  • Developing a Mental Health Policy

Session 4: Mental Health and Well-Being tools and resources

  • Specialist support

Course leader Lorraine Petersen is an MHFA quality assured instructor who has many years’ experience of working with an array of children with special and additional needs within mainstream settings, and hands-on experience of the issues relating to caring for and educating these children.

This course costs £120 and includes lunch
