Doing What Matters: Relationships That Count (NOW POSTPONED)
This Conference offers attendees the chance to hear and learn from two inspirational Key Note Speakers: Stuart Guest and Richard McCann. There will also be a series of workshops led by Teachers, Head Teachers, Educational Psychologists, Care Leavers and Trainers that will provide delegates with practical ideas and guidance to support young people both in care and previously in care in schools and settings
Stuart Guest has over 11 years’ experience as a head teacher and is a father of birth and adopted children. He has developed trauma friendly approaches at his school and appeared on the BBC One Show in January 2018. Stuart is a blogger, speaker and trainer for trauma informed approaches in schools.
Richard McCann is living proof of the difference that can be made by offering the right words of encouragement and support. Born into poverty, on a council estate, in one of the roughest areas in Leeds, Richard’s life became even more chaotic following the death of his mother. In his keynote speech, Richard shares his warts-and-all story of setbacks, hardship and resilience with humility and touches of humour.
The Statutory Role of the Designated Teacher for Looked After and Previously Looked After Children
There will be opportunities throughout the morning to examine the legal framework, discuss the implementation of the statutory guidance (The designated teacher for looked-after and previously looked-after children, statutory guidance on their roles and responsibilities. DfE, 2018) and also consider Ofsted expectations.
