Session 1 Workshops

  • Being Brave with Sex and Relationship Education with Dr Sacha Mason & Dr Richard Woolley This workshop shares the findings of research undertaken in primary schools. It outlines the challenges that teachers face in discussing sexual matters with primary aged children in terms of appropriateness and explores the complexities of whole school SRE policy. Sacha and Richard will share the findings from their research regarding the perceptions of KS2 children about their SRE provision. Delegates will have an opportunity to discuss their experiences and views of managing this important curriculum area with primary aged children, and consider this in light of recent government policy changes. We advocate being brave as a teacher, focussing on the concerns of student teachers and what our own concerns about what ‘relationships education’ might be.
  • Resilience and the school team with Alan Searle - The workshop will consist of an introduction to what makes a good day and what makes a bad day, regarding perception and how this informs people of their behaviour. Supporting this will be a look into the mental toughness assessment, to demonstrate how an understanding of the self and others in the team could affect the productivity. 

  • What does 'good' PSHE look like? with John Rees - Exploring how PSHE contributes to learning across the curriculum and how schools can utilise a build back approach to PSHE.

  • Shame on you?! with Hannah Clarke - Recognising & understanding the signs & impact of shame on relationships, behaviour and access to learning

Session 2 Workshops

  • Making Connections and New Conceptions with Dr Sacha Mason & Dr Richard Woolley What is new Relationships Education going to be about? What do we want it to be? This workshop will explore the 15 Domains of Healthy Sexual Development as a starting point for considering content and focus. Resources to support the development of domains relating to healthy relationships will be explored, considering a range of relationships that children will encounter. The domains will be used as a starting point to exemplify practice in developing relationships education with primary aged children. The Family Diversities Reading Resource, which has just been republished in revised and extended form, will be used as a resource for supporting staff working with children in a range of settings.
  • Resilience for Young People with Alan Searle - Would you like to develop your understanding of psychological or emotional resilience? Mental toughness techniques or interventions can be learnt and adopted to fully support the learners’ journey, with very important life skills. Also, this introduction to mental toughness and the MTQ48 assessment will add value in the classroom for the progression of young people. 

  • RSE SEN Secondary with Jan Hargrave

  • SHADES - Primary Children with Tony France - Safe handling and de-escalation skills

  • Mental Toughness & Resilience for Staff with Alan Searle - The workshop will consist of an introduction to what makes a good day and what makes a bad day, regarding perception and how this informs people of their behaviour. Supporting this will be a look into the mental toughness assessment, to demonstrate how an understanding of the self and others in the team could affect the productivity.

  • Under pressure : Understanding our responses to stress to improve communication and relationships in schools with Steve Russell - The idea of ‘driver behaviours’ is that when under stress and pressure we tend towards particular behaviours that can both undermine our own wellbeing and also hinder relationships in the staffroom. In schools the driver behaviours that are often apparent include a drive to please others (at the expense of taking care of our own needs and struggling to say ‘no’) and a drive to be hurrying up and busy. Not only can these be detrimental to ourselves, but they can also fuel tensions and conflict with colleagues. In this workshop we will explore this with a view to:

  • Offering insights into helpful self-care approaches
  • Identifying the strengths our characteristic styles bring to working in schools/with children and young people
  • Considering the impact driver behaviours have on communication and relationships
  • Identifying ways to optimise working relationships by getting the best out of colleagues during stressful times
