Behaviour interventions are effective in ‘closing the gap’ (Sutton Trust/EEF 2014). Research shows an inextricable link between attachment and school readiness and school success (Commodari 2013, Geddes 2006). For example, as many as 80% of pupils diagnosed with ADHD have attachment issues. Teachers and other adults in school can provide attachment opportunities for pupils and thus reduce challenging behaviour
This course is an interactive, thought-provoking introduction to the topic which allows opportunities for s haring best practice and developing effective, evidence based strategies.
On completion of the session participants will:
- Understand the key concepts relating to attachment within a school setting
- Understand the possible implications of attachment difficulties for children within the school environment
- Be able to identify pupils at risk of insecure attachments
- Identify possible support strategies for use on an individual, classroom and whole school level
- Be able to talk authoritatively to colleagues about attachment and thus build capacity within school
- Have developed strategies to support at risk pupils
- Receive quality assured resources
- Produce a bespoke outline action plan
