Creating a ‘ready to learn’ environment for pupils who have experienced trauma (podcast)

I was interviewed by Founder Anna Bateman for Halcyon Education's podcast series recently. This is a series of podcasts that puts mental health and wellbeing in schools at its core.

In this episode I talk about a few ways in which schools can look to create a safe environment in which vulnerable children feel calm, grounded and ready to learn.

From connecting and providing a structure at key transition times in the day, to building positive relationships and trusted connections with key staff, and adapting the physical environment as seen through the eyes of the children.

For access to resources which compliment some of the strategies discussed in this episode, see my blog/resource pages.

Some of the strategies discussed in this podcast are covered in more detail (along with many others) in both my Session II half day INSET training, and across my new Twilight series - see What I Do for further information.
