On the 10th and 11th October, our Head Teacher, Sara Fletcher, attended the annual conference of the National Association of Special Schools (NASS). This was a timely occasion in which to reflect on the status of the sector and context in which we currently work, affected as it is by political uncertainty and changing priorities. Opportunities such as this help The Lioncare School to stay outward-facing and to be strategic in planning for the future.
As well as a rare moment to drink hot coffee and enjoy lunch at lunchtime, the conference allowed Sara time to experience input from OFSTED, colleagues, and invaluably, learners.
On Day 2 Sara was joined by our Caterpillar's Class Teacher, Dani Christopher, and led a workshop on "Trauma-Informed Practice in an SEN School".
The workshop was packed out with colleagues keen to discuss how developmental trauma can impact on both behaviour and learning, and what schools can do to improve outcomes for children.
A strong central theme was how adults, and the relationships they can foster when supported and empowered, are our most valuable resource and intervention; echoing a key principle of our 'C16' Therapeutic Curriculum: "Living is learning and all adults who interact with our children contribute to their curriculum".
The workshop was well received and has created an ongoing dialogue with other schools. A memorable piece of feedback received was, "Thank you for simplifying the horrendous".
