Innovation and Impact days provide an opportunity for the host school to share aspects of their practice with colleagues from other special schools. Through discussion, networking and seeing practice in action delegates can deepen their understanding of practice, ask questions of their own practice and in turn further develop their practice.
Focus of the day
This day will focus on the place of pupils’ mental health and wellbeing within the whole curriculum, with a particular emphasis on the Thrive approach.
Thrive is a systematic and targeted approach for the early identification of emotional developmental need in children and young people. The Thrive approach builds resilience and resourcefulness, decreases the risk of mental illness and re-invigorates the learning provision and participants will learn how the approach has changed whole school practice within Perseid.
Participants will learn how Video Interactive Guidance and Video Enhanced Reflective Practice are used as strategies to use to further support pupils mental health and wellbeing and will consider the importance of pupils mental health when providing behaviour support. The impact of Solutions Circles as a method of supporting staff wellbeing will be shared.
Participants will also consider the role and importance of safeguarding within this area.
