Event description

Description

This specialist SEMH conference will be a fantastic opportunity to hear from experts on a range of topics through keynotes and workshops. During the day you will meet like-minded professionals and participate in workshops to help you develop your practice and give you strategies to improve outcomes for the most vulnerable children.

Suitable for:

  • Heads of School
  • Deputy Headteachers
  • SENCOs
  • Senior Teachers
  • Specialist SEMH practitioners

Professor Barry Carpenter, CBE, OBE, PhD, will give the Keynote Address, discussing Engaging Learners with Complex Needs; The 21st Century Challenge. This keynote address will explore how our repertoire of teaching approaches must continue to change and diversify in order to support children and young people with SEMH needs.

Kirsty Jamieson, MAEd, Head of Inclusion at The Mead Academy Trust will speak after lunch on Creating and Sustaining a Model for SEMH Outreach Support, and how we can support children with SEMH needs in their own school community effectively.

The afternoon will then feature 3 workshops, and each delegate can select their preferred workshop:

Workshop A: Developing wellbeing in schools, Dr Linda Mallory, Educational Psychologist

A workshop to apply Positive Psychology and Mindset principles in the classroom to improve self-esteem and outcomes for children. Dr Mallory will focus on developing practical positive psychology strategies for teachers to implement and promote a growth mindset, and resilience in classroom so that children can reduce anxiety and improve outcomes.

Workshop B: The effect of SpLD and dyslexia on SEMH, Dr Sarah Couzens, Lecturer & SEND consultant

Research evidence indicates that young people with SpLD / dyslexia are particularly at risk of mental health issues. Dr Couzens will explore in this workshop the particular SEMH challenges faced by learners with SpLD and how practitioners can best help children develop confidence and resilience for the future.

Workshop C: Autism in girls, Prof Barry Carpenter CBE, OBE, PhD

Girls with autism are often overlooked for support because their identifying behaviours can be different to boys. Girls on the autism spectrum can struggle with extreme stress, leading to mental health issues, problem behaviours, and school refusal. This workshop will help you better understand girls with autism, enabling you to recognise, support and teach them effectively.
