Essentials of Boarding
25 May 2017 10:30 - 25 May 2017 15:30

Audience: Staff new to boarding


Title: Essentials of Boarding


Date: May 25, 2017


Why should you attend?  The level of professionalism in boarding supervision has risen dramatically in recent years, due in part, to improved regulation and increased parental expectation. This seminar will complement school based induction and provide a wider context for staff new to boarding. The sooner staff new to boarding have a real understanding of the basic principles and expectations of a boarding role, the sooner the school will have effective members of staff who will enjoy their duties and feel able to deal with the challenges that arise.



  • Boarding and the national framework
  • Meeting boarders’ needs
  • Working safely
  • Effective communication
  • Clarifying your role
