Last Friday afternoon all of our teaching staff attended the first in a series of training sessions designed to give us a better understanding of how humans develop from an early age and the conditions that allow children to grow and flourish. Later sessions will take us through the challenges that teenagers face as they move through adolescence and, in particular, how we can best support children this stage in their lives. An entire session will be dedicated to training staff on supporting our pupils when they are feeling stressed. The training will also be offered to pupils and parents later this session.
At a time when there is so much pressure on young people to aim high and be the best they can be I'm really pleased to be in
volved in this exciting initiative.
