Creating a ‘Welcome Team’ in school

20/04/2020 - 14:00 to 16:00


Delivered via Zoom Webinar

This is a practical ‘non-medical’ workshop for front line practitioners working with children and young people that will find starting at a new school or setting difficult.

Drawing from international research and literature, reports from inclusive schools and our own experience over many years as educational psychologists of the challenges of children with major social and emotional needs, we will explore together what the best practice can and could look like.

We explore:

1.Creating a welcoming team or ‘committee’ of young people

2.Training the team in effective ‘welcoming’ and supporting

3.Building a support circle around a new child and running this circle effectively

4.Auditing what makes for a successful welcome of any new child at the school

5.Facilitating the involvement of young people in successful welcoming activities and preparation

6.Links between this work and building ‘circles of friends’ and peer mediator training
