School wellbeing awareness inset day workshop

Teacher inset day workshop

WELLBEING IN SCHOOLS - INSET DAY WORKSHOP

This teacher inset day workshop will offer guidance and practical tools for improving emotional wellbeing in schools.

You will learn

  • What helps wellbeing in schools
  • Critical thinking and behavioural techniques
  • How to build resilience in a school
  • Reward and recognition that builds wellbeing
  • Creating healthy working and life habits

You will take away

  • How to focus your mental energy
  • The positive effects of humour and laughter for emotional intelligence
  • How to avoid behaviour and thinking that causes stress
  • Ways to create happiness and positivity in a school team

Diminishing budgets, increased pressure on student attainment, longer hours and more paperwork are just some of challenges in the current educational environment. With so many things going on, wellbeing may be overlooked as a luxury rather than as essential part of a school plan.

However, staff wellbeing is a vital factor for quality, performance and productivity. Demotivated staff are often disengaged, they do not enjoy their jobs and eventually leave.

Research shows that teacher happiness has a knock-on effect for students. It also directly influences greater staff retention, decreases sick leave, and lowers supply teacher costs. Therefore, helping your teaching teams understand how they can help themselves and access behaviours that increase wellbeing, while supporting them through simple school initiatives, will greatly benefit you, your school, pupils and teams.

We're feeling the love!

The session was excellent, engaging, informative, practical and funny with clear expectations. We have had positive comments from staff. This course will really help planning for wellbeing moving forwards.
Karen Murphy, Deputy Head Teacher The Grange, Runcorn

The effects of mindfulness have been found to be beneficial in a wide range of settings. Over the past decade, training in mindfulness—the intentional cultivation of moment-by-moment non-judgmental focused attention and awareness—has spread from its initial western applications in medicine to other fields, including education.

The positive effects of mindfulness for learning when implemented over a period of time have been seen to:

  • Increase attention
  • Increase executive function (working memory, planning, organisation, and impulse control)
  • Decrease ADHD behaviours—specifically hyperactivity and impulsivity
  • Reduce conduct and anger management problems
  • Increase emotional regulation
  • Increase self-calming
  • Increase social skills and social compliance
  • Decrease anxiety in general and text anxiety in particular
  • Increase self-esteem
  • Increase quality of sleep

Our mindfulness INSET training sessions can be delivered with teachers and children. We can also ensure teachers are equipped with resources to continue mindfulness practices back in the classroom.>

It can sometimes be the belief that ability and intelligence are set, believing we are born intelligent and we either are or are not. This is not true; intelligence and ability are obtainable by all and generally the only thing stopping us is self-belief.

Understanding how to help children believe in themselves as well as the people around them, will bring out the best in them. This should be the starting point in any child's school life. This teacher inset day training session will be a mix of theory and practical skills to take back to the classroom. It will introduce background knowledge and research into how the brain takes in information and what impacts on how we learn.

You will learn

  • The science of humour and laughter as a thinking and development tool
  • The power of laughter for learning and memory

Humour laughter and happiness are vital ingredients for engagement. If you get children and young people emotionally involved, if they enjoy what they’re doing, they’re going to want to be there and want to learn.

One of the most important chemicals for learning is dopamine. Dopamine is enhanced when we feel good, connected and positive. Therefore creating a classroom where this happens will enhance learning connections. This teacher inset day workshop will be a mix of theory and practical skills to take back to the classroom and use every day for increasing engagement, learning and motivation.
