Supporting younger pupils/boarders - Surrey
Date: March 08, 2017
Audience: This workshop is open to any member of the school community: House staff, matrons, and teachers as well as health professionals, those involved in PSHE, counsellors, teaching assistants, enrichment officers, pastoral staff, school nurses and medical staff are all welcome.
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.
