Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

This course is suitable for school leaders, SENCOs and those with responsibilities for pastoral care and pupils' well-being in all phases and types of school. This new course, developed exclusively for the NAHT, will explore mental health issues affecting children and young people in the current climate by: providing an introduction to decoding mental health; explaining how research from neuroscientists gives us an insight into what impacts on children's ability to learn; examining the relationship between learning and emotional well-being and the effects of therapeutic approaches; using case studies to illustrate an inquiry-based approach to mental health issues. In addition, discussion will include: the move from BESD (behavioural, social and emotional development) to SEMH (social, emotional and mental health difficulties) in the new SEND code of practice (2015) and the implications for schools and how to develop resilience to improve the well-being of children and young people
