Free Resources

Training resources for Schools 

These resources were originally developed during covid lockdown to support schools that were unable to access the face-to-face training that I would usually deliver. As I am now retired I have decided to make them available for free for anyone who wishes to use them. They are aimed at school staff working in any role in a primary school setting. (Age 3- 11 years). They have been developed to be used individually or as a whole package to increase awareness and understanding of children’s emotional well-being and behaviour. Each individual resource consists of a overview of the topic, with supportive videos, activities and strategies to encourage staff to reflect on and implement their learning. Each resource can be worked through individually, in small groups or with the whole staff team. Each resource takes approximately one hour to complete, but can be done in sections.
