Adopting relationship based approaches to supporting positive behaviour, de-escalation and the inclusion of children and young people with social, emotional and mental health needs.
The session will aim to support candidates in identifying the emotions that lie behind the behaviours, including how different experiences can lead to changes in the development of the brain and the stress systems within the body which in turn shape the behaviours that we see. It will support candidates to build positive, trusting relationships that support the child to mutually regulate/self regulate. It will explore the use of relationships to support pupils in expressing their needs and emotions in appropriate ways to understand triggers for those behaviours and develop the skillls required to maintain the positive relationships and support good emotional and academic progress. The session will also consider the legal implication around exclusion and use of restrictive practice.
Staff will have a comprehensive understanding of how to identify social, emotional and mental health needs early and subsequently reduce behaviours that challenge the school/organisation. They will understand the legalities around the use of exclusion and restrictive practice and consider alternative approaches to meeting the needs of children with social, emotional and mental health needs.
All staff in school including ,class teachers, pastoral leads, support staff and leadership teams and governors
