Course overview:

At every special school, the needs of children are varied, complex and individualised.  This can lead to an environment where the emotional, physical and mental impact on adults can be both unexpected and extreme.  Through our experiences with a wide range of special schools – and special provisions within mainstream schools – we know that our approaches can support adults in maintaining good emotional health, without compromising on standards for pupils.

This course shares several of our favourite approaches for developing wellbeing for all adults in a special needs setting.  We explore:

  • Good communication to ensure support – and being supported
  • Practical activities for daily life to help regulate and manage emotions
  • Wellbeing as a team and an individual – lifting each other, collaborating to success
  • Maintaining sustainable good working practices – at every level of your school.



This course is appropriate for special schools.

  • Special School Senior, Middle and Subject Leaders
  • Special School Class teachers and TAs
