Code: OPL/21/139 Preparing for end of KS2 tests and teacher assessment for experienced teachers (AM)

This course is aimed at experienced year 6 teachers. It is similar in content to the course, ‘New to Year 6? Preparing for End of Year Assessment' and so participants should not attend if they have already attended the ‘New to’ course. This course will clarify the statutory requirements for KS2 and moderation. It will provide teachers with an opportunity to consolidate their understanding of standards and explore the KS2 SATs. The tutor is the KS2 moderation manager and will be able to discuss any queries about KS2 moderation.

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’

Code: LAC/21/006 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.
