Social, Emotional and Mental Health Conference - Improving Behaviour, Attendance and Wellbeing in our Schools

Social, Emotional and Mental Health Conference - Improving Behaviour, Attendance and Wellbeing in our Schools

Thursday 14th November | 09.30 - 15.15 | Worcestershire County Cricket Club, Worcester

Aimed at SENCOs, Headteachers, Attendance Officers and Teachers, our SEND conference for 2019 focusses on Social Emotional and Mental Health in our Schools.

We have put together a comprehensive programme of keynote speakers offering a wealth of expertise, advice and practical strategies to help you to improve behaviour, wellbeing and therefore attendance in your schools.


We will hear ‘need to know’ updates about changes to the OFSTED inspection framework. You will learn more about what inspectors will be looking for when making judgements in the, now separate, areas of personal development and behaviour and attitudes. We will explore how your support of SEND pupils in school can meet the new criteria.


Another focus subject will be the responsibilities schools have in supporting pupils with medical conditions. Our expert keynote speaker will explain the process of using Individual Health Care Plans (IHCPs) and how they can be used to support the mental health needs of students. We will discuss how the effective use of IHCPs can impact positively on attendance.


We will also explore how relational approaches form the basis of effective mental health provision in schools and how this can support the management of challenging behaviour and attendance at school. Student-teacher relationships are at the heart of all interventions. This key note will help you find ways to transform trauma and attachment theory into practice in order to make real changes to wellbeing in your school.


Finally, a chance to get involved in a practical session and understand the theory behind the powerful technique of EFT Tapping for stress management. You will come away with strategies to use tapping to alleviate both your own stressful or negative feelings and those of the children you support.

Relational approaches to managing behaviours that challenge in schools

Dr Asha Patel will explore with us how relational approaches form the basis of effective mental health provision in schools and how this can support the management of challenging behaviour and attendance at school. Student-teacher relationships are at the heart of all interventions. This key note will support educational staff to transform trauma and attachment theory into practice in order to create systemic, sustainable changes within the educational environment. Using this approach ensures that everyone’s mental health is supported.

Keynote: Craig Trafford, Registered Practitioner, EFT International. Registered Educational Kinesiology Consultant and Certified Stress Management Trainer.

EFT Tapping to relieve stress and anxiety.

EFT Tapping helps us tune in to the negative patterns that we form around our uncomfortable thoughts, feelings, or troubling memories. We ‘tap’ on pressure points while bringing the thoughts or emotions into consciousness. The aim is to find relief, relaxation, and promote healing around the emotional or physical issues that hold us back. Craig will lead a practical session and explain the theory behind this useful technique. Delegates will come away with techniques to use tapping to alleviate both their own stressful or negative feelings and those of the children they support.
