Supporting younger pupils/boarders 


Date: March 02, 2017


Why you should attend: Younger pupils, whether day or boarding, are facing greater pressures and greater expectations. Parental, peer and societal influences are increasing the emotional and behavioural issues which we are seeing in our young students. Aspects such as body image and self-esteem, relationships and school work/life balance are increasingly creating challenges for youngsters and for the adults charged with supporting them. This workshop will explore the key emotional and behavioural issues and consider how we can best support our young people.

Who should attend? These regional workshops are aimed at all staff in Prep Schools and Junior Boarding who wish to review their current knowledge and practice in relation to working with young pupils/boarders. The focus is on pastoral care and wellbeing with the onus on sharing best practise and developing opportunities to explore different approaches/solutions to issues such as management of electronic devices, relationships, behaviour, and mental fitness/resilience.  

Outline programme:

  • The key issues currently impacting on young people in their school and family life.
  • Current understanding of emotional and mental health as it impacts on prep age pupils
  • How to create opportunities for children to devleop resilience 
  • How to nurture better relationships and reduce bullying
  • Open forum.

This workshop will include a chance to tour a Boarding House.
