Making a difference: a day of learning practice for pupil support assistants


23/11/2019 09:30






 About this event

Following on from the success of our pupil support assistant day of learning earlier in the year, we are delighted to announce its return. This FREE event will celebrate the fantastic work achieved by pupil support assistants and feature a range of expert speakers, interactive workshops and opportunities to share practice and experiences around subjects including autism, dyslexia trauma and children's voices. This event is funded by My Rights, My Say.

Pupil support assistants are vital members of the school team and their input can be a key factor in whether a child has a positive experience of school. They are often expected to juggle many different responsibilities from supporting the learning and teaching in class, to providing behaviour support to children who find the classroom environment stressful.

Feeling valued, knowledgeable and confident in their role helps staff provide the right support and ensure the best outcomes for pupils which is why our learning and development day includes practical sessions on;

  • practising self-care
  • trauma informed practice
  • managing distressed behaviour in the classroom
  • supporting pupils with working memory difficulties
  • incorporating children’s voices in practice

There will also be an opportunity to find out more about the resources and support available from Enquire and My Rights, My Say

Lunch will be provided for delegates.

PLEASE NOTE: This event is only for pupil support assistants, therefore it is essential you state your job title when booking.

We warmly welcome both new delegates and delegates who attended the previous event to this day of learning as the content will be suitable for all.
