Headteachers’ Wellbeing Lunch, Networking and Talk with special guest Adrian Bethune

Headteachers’ Wellbeing Event – Friday 31st January – 1pm-3:30pm at Milton Road Primary School, CB4 2BD

Join us for a delicious lunch at Milton Road Primary School (thanks to our partners Lunchtime Company) and an afternoon of collaborative discussion, learning with and from others and reconnecting with peers.

Hear from Adrian Bethune about his book ‘Wellbeing in the Primary Classroom’ (everyone is getting a copy!). His main focus will be on your wellbeing as a headteacher but touching on the ways in which the concepts can ripple out to staff and pupil wellbeing too.

 

  • Stress Management– not all stress is bad but chronic stress can be extremely detrimental to our health and wellbeing.
  • Mindfulness– how to establish your own mindfulness practice to improve mood, increase resilience, boosts immune system functioning and increase levels of happiness.
  • Resilience – being a headteacher is full of highs and lows, but if     we’re not careful the lows can knock us down.

Date: Friday 31st Jan 2020 1:00pm-3:30pm

Venue: Milton Road Primary School, CB4 2BD

Cost: £35 (includes lunch and a copy of the book)

Train the trainer course for Delivering Early Mental Health Interventions

Increasing resilience is crucial to improving outcomes for young people and reducing the risk of mental health issues escalating.  With rising needs, coupled with budget cuts, our Delivering Early Interventions Train The Trainer course empowers settings to develop group work programmes for KS1-4 in a uniquely sustainable and cost effective way.
