Event description

Description

A full day training for teachers or TAs to deliver the Zippy's Friends for Pupils with Special Needs programme.

What is Zippy's Friends For Pupils with Special Needs?

Pupils with Special Educational Needs are at much greater risk of developing mental health problems and there is a lack of suitable resources for these pupils to promote social and emotional wellbeing. We have adapted our mainstream mental health promotion programme Zippy's Friends for pupils in special schools. While the mainstream version of the programme is for 5-7 year olds, the adapted version has been delivered to pupils up to the age of 19, depending on their needs.

This extensively adapted version of the programme has been independently evaluated and shown to "have beneficial effects for children with SEN, particularly in the areas of self-awareness, ability to regulate emotions and relationship skills".

Who should attend?

This programme and the training are for special schools or mainstream schools with specialist SEND provisions.

Class teachers or another education professional who can deliver the programme to the class should attend. Only those who attend the training day will be able to deliver the programme.

What's included?

The training covers everything you'll need to run the programme with your children including theoretical background, content of the programme, materials used and evaluation.

After the training you can purchase all of the materials required to run the programme.

PLEASE NOTE:

In order to deliver the programmes, schools will need to purchase the programme resources. A full set of Zippy's Friends for Pupils with Special Needs costs £325. This includes all lesson plans and adapted materials for the teacher and resources for 15 pupils. The programme can be delivered year on year at no extra cost. Additional materials can be purchased in subsequent years but this isn’t a requirement.

Lunch will be provided.
