Code: LAC/21/020 Explore Alternatives to Exclusion

Book now course closing soon

Children We Care For are more likely to be excluded from school than any social or ethnic group. It is clear that meeting the needs of these complex young people, especially in relation to their Social, Emotional and Mental Health, presents a significant challenge in school. At the same time many teachers and school leaders feel that their authority has been eroded, and are looking for different ways of addressing challenging behaviour. There are powerful national narratives about ‘zero tolerance approaches’, but in many cases these seem to lead to higher rates of exclusion, often for the most vulnerable learners, and staff continue to feel deskilled and powerless. This session will explore alternatives to exclusion that can also contribute to building constructive and legitimate authority in schools, empowering staff and helping all children to feel safer. It will present theories, ideas and areas for discussion with attendees that could be taken forward by schools from this brief introduction

Code: LAC/21/019 Session 6: Leaving Care – Why young people disappear

Book now course closing soon

Delivered by Luke Rogers - BEM Director of Strategy, The Care Leaders. This session shows you how young people can transition from care into independent and meaningful lives. Leaving care is a cliff age. When young people reach a certain age or status, overnight their support can disappear, leaving them to navigate complex and tricky systems to gain support and access to crucial services, such as education and housing. All children are classed as ‘adults’ and will have left care by 18; many leave well before this. We see a huge number of young people from care becoming homeless, not attending education, unemployed and having higher levels of mental health issues than their peers. These are the young people we know about; many young people just disappear. Leaders are frustrated at the lack of provision; practitioners worry, and young people are invisible. Young people deserve to lead successful independent lives with relationships that last a lifetime. Please review course objectives for booking instructions, as this is an external event.

Code: LAC/21/005 PACE for School Staff

PACE is an approach developed by Dr Dan Hughes, an American psychologist who works with traumatised children. PACE stands for Playfulness, Acceptance, Curiosity and Empathy. Being PACEful enables you to have effective, empowering interactions with children who have experienced trauma and who, as a result, do not respond to you in the same way as other children you teach. It is a useful classroom tool for all children, not just those who have had a difficult start to life. This session is designed to help teachers and TAs to learn more about this approach and practice using it over the course of the afternoon workshop.

Code: LAC/21/009 Speech, Language and Communication Needs and challenging behaviour

There is a well-researched and clearly demonstrated link between Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN) and challenging behaviour. Research also shows us that care experienced children are much more likely than their peers to experience SLCN. We know that addressing SLCN, which are often hidden needs, can reduce challenging behaviour by meeting the underlying need. This session will introduce you to some of the reasons for the higher incidence of SLCN in children we care for in terms of how language and communication develop. We will present some resources we have developed with a range of services across the Local Authority to support schools in identifying and addressing these needs’
