The importance of schoolThe importance of staff reflecting on what they bring to school

It can be really useful for school staff to check in with themselves each day on their journey in to school and ask themselves ” How am I feeling? What am i bringing with me to work today?” This enables them to identify their own thoughts and feelings before they arrive and start absorbing the thoughts and feelings of the children they work with. This increased self-awareness may result in an ability to stay more in tune with themselves and result in them being more emotionally available for the children, an essential skill when working with children who are managing difficult thoughts and feelings themselves.
