    Behaviour Management Techniques

    With Family Solutions Somerset

    Monday, 24th January at 6:30pm, estimated end time 8pm

     

    A whistle stop tour of some parenting techniques and strategies to use with your children aged 2-18.

    We will be looking at the following principles that underpin all areas of parenting (and relationships) whatever the age.

    • Emotion Coaching, being able to label our emotions- CBT/Behaviour Curve
    • Showing empathy not sympathy
    • Attention – children will seek any kind of attention – good or bad
    • Ignoring behaviours we want to see less of
    • Specific praise… labelled
    • Social Learning Theory – new behaviours can be learnt by observing and imitating others (bandura)
    • Use of rewards – after the event (bribes come before), smart and cheap

    The session will be fully collaborative, and we will be open to conversations and listening to your own techniques which have been successful.

    Growth Mindset

    SCC Educational Psychologist

    31st January 2022 at 6:30pm, estimated end time 8pm

     

    The beliefs children have about intelligence, effort, and struggle impact the choices they make about learning.  Children with a fixed mindset believe that intelligence is fixed at birth and doesn’t change with practice.  They see school as a place where abilities are evaluated and they interpret mistakes are a sign that they lack talent. 

    This session will help you help your child/ren to develop a growth mindset believing that intelligence can be developed. These students see school as a place to develop their abilities and think of challenges as opportunities to grow.

    Dyslexia Awareness

    With Mark Long, SCC Lead Advisory Teacher

    Monday, 28th February 2022

    Starting at 6:30pm, estimated end time 8pm

     

    Dyslexia is a learning difference that affects 1 in 10 people. Individuals with dyslexia often find it challenging to develop reading and spelling fluency and can also have difficulty with remembering verbal instructions and learning sequences such as the alphabet, days of the week and times table facts.

    This session provides an introduction to dyslexia. It explains why children with dyslexia can find reading, spelling and writing so challenging and describes strategies that can be used to help children improve in these areas.

    Online Safety & Social Media

    With Amy Brittan, SCC Education Technology Advisor

    14th March 2022 at 6:30pm, estimated end time 8pm

     

    New technologies inspire children to be creative, communicate and learn.  But with the digital world changing all the time, how can you make sure your child’s staying safe?

    This session will provide parents/guardians/carers with information to support their children to enjoy technology safely and responsibly.  You will have the opportunity to think about what you want to do to protect your family and to equip them for their future.

  • School Closure - Year 8. Tuesday 5 April.

    Published 04/04/22

    Dear Parent / Carer,
    Due to significant staff disruption due to Covid 19, regrettably we will have to close year 8 tomorrow, 5 April 2022.  It will not be possible to run live online lessons as staff may be being used to cover absent colleagues. We will therefore ensure that work will be available on Google Classroom.  
    Currently we are only planning to close lessons to Year 8 for one day but if the situation changes we will let you know as soon as we can, as it may be necessary to extend the closure, or to close other year groups. 
    I am very sorry we have to do this, but we cannot run all lessons with the current levels of staff absence.  
    Thanks for your forbearance.
    Mr Chris Wade
    Principal
