Prep school issues

February 11, 2019


Why should you attend?

These sessions are aimed at staff in prep and junior boarding who wish to review current knowledge and practice. It will provide the opportunity to discuss different approaches and solutions to issues which are becoming more prevalent in our younger boarding communities including management of electronic devices, social media, relationships, mental health, parental pressures and body image.

Programme outline:

  • Key issues currently impacting on young people in their school and family lives
  • Current understanding of emotional and mental health as it impacts on prep/junior age pupils
  • What is resilience and how to create opportunities for children to develop it?
  • How to nurture better relationships and reduce bullying.
