Domestic violence, alcohol and drug abuse, a decline in parental mental health, post- natal depression, forced migration, and removal from the birth home can all cause trauma to children’s brains which result in attachment difficulties. Increasingly, many children and young people have social and emotional needs that go beyond what the majority of school staff has been trained to deal with. Many of these children underachieve in school.

To support schools in raising the life- chances of all pupils, a group of six Northamptonshire Teaching Schools, in collaborative with Virtual Schools, are rolling out a training programme. Our aim is to create Reconnect Attachment Aware School Leaders who can cascade vital information to all staff. Funded by Virtual Schools and written by Specialist Leaders, social workers, early years and behaviour specialists, under the guidance of a clinical psychologist, these materials explore strategies to fully engage children and young people with trauma difficulties.

We would like to train two people from each school to become attachment aware Reconnect Leaders. We will provide all of the initial training and the resources for you to take the materials back into school and train your staff. If you have the following qualities you will make an ideal Reconnect School Leader:

  • A high degree of emotional intelligence in your relationships with others
  • Someone who already has a good awareness of working with pupils with vulnerabilities
  • Someone who is confident to lead the development of others across all teams
  • Someone who is available to support the continuous development of others within your school
  • A person who has the capacity to inform school leadership and to provide advice about how to shape school activity and infrastructure to support the needs of vulnerable learners
  • Someone who exhibits a keen interest in this area of pupils’ development
