Did you know...

In the UK, one in six children have experienced at least one significant Adverse Childhood Experience.

This can have a huge impact on their educational development and increase the risk of engaging in health-harming behaviours that severely damage overall wellbeing.

Trauma-Informed Practice typically takes a holistic approach, looking at the social, psychological, and physiological effects of trauma, and tailoring the response according to the specific needs of the individual.

Very Engaging.

"There was so much in the course that will be useful, both to myself and colleagues. As a school, our focus currently is Oracy, and the opening of the presentation helped me to focus on exactly where I need to focus activities and support. But the practical advice later, will be so useful for colleagues who are developing children's ability to communicate, regardless of ability.


The presenter, Sara, was very engaging, and clearly passionate about children and learning. having sat through so many zoom courses, and feeling a passenger, Sara really brought the subject to life and I felt fully engaged."
