EEF Publishes Updated Guidance on Supporting Schools to Understand Behaviour
The Virtual School very much welcomes some of the key principles outlined in the latest publication by the Education Endowment Fund (EEF) “Improving Behaviour in Schools”.
This is particularly timely in light of the “Inside I’m Hurting” Conference being hosted by the Virtual School at Elland Road on Friday 13th September with its focus on the importance of connection and empathy for children who have experienced significant trauma and loss which ties in strongly to the first recommendation in the EEF report that “good relationships matter”. The report goes on to highlight the teaching of learning behaviours, using simple approaches that promote connection and relationships (greeting each student positively at the door) and tailoring approaches to the needs of individuals.
The full report is available here:
We look forward to seeing you at the conference in September. For schools and settings, to book your two complimentary places please log on to Mondale Events booking page here.
For further information or support around any of the issues raised in the report, contact Jancis Andrew, Head of the Virtual School for Children Looked After at firstname.lastname@example.org
