Enhancing Achievement: Pupil and Staff Wellbeing Training

Wellbeing is increasingly being recognised as a vital aid for effective learning. Nowadays, stress, anxiety, and other mental health issues are big barriers to both teaching and learning. But there is so much you can do to help pupils and staff be more relaxed and happy. From using techniques such as breathing, meditation, and yoga, to even taking learning outdoors. We’ve been involved in the design and delivery of a number of wellbeing programmes in schools and behavioural units over the years, and we have seen firsthand how they transform schools and greatly improve pupils’ ability to learn.

DAY ONE
This is a full-day CPD, either as a whole school or attendance at training day as an individual.

As a result of this course you will:

  • Understand why our wellbeing and that of the children is important
  • Learn how our brains work and how this affects our actions
  • Know about current research and pedagogy
  • Discover ways to measure our mental wellbeing
  • Recognize how diet and exercise affects our wellbeing.
  • Uncover ways to create a supportive learning environment.
  • Leave with various activities to support emotional literacy and wellbeing to use back in the classroom.

DAY TWO

Put your learning into practice at your school! You will be supported by a wellbeing consultant who will work alongside you and the children in your class to introduce some of the strategies from the training day.

Time will be spent in each classroom introducing basic wellbeing activities to each class. There will also be one-to-one support for next steps in introducing wellbeing strategies throughout the school followed by a staff meeting to introduce next steps and answer any queries.

Further support is available to create bespoke programmes for the whole school if desired. If you’re interested in improving the wellbeing of your staff and pupils, then please get in touch and we can talk through the process in more detail. We can design a tailored course to meet the specific needs of your class or school.
