Children and young people can experience a range of problems in school, in many cases their peers will be
able to help them. This full day (or two half day) training session enables a group of children to
confidently take on this role.
During the session we will consider:-
● the types of issues which might come up
● listening skills
● problem solving
● when to refer to an adult
This half day session will look at the skills required to be an effective School Council representative. With effective training the School Council are more likely to have an impact on school improvement and to be able to work independently.
The session will include:-
● Effective listening
● Running meetings
● Topics the School Council can be involved in
● Spreading the message
This programme enables children to take on the role of promoting health messages in school. A group of children will undertake an initial half day training session which will consider the role of an ambassador and some key health messages. Initial resources will be provided for the ambassadors to share in school.
Five packs of further resources will be sent to enable the ambassadors to continue their role and share new health messages with their peers. Example topics include, food, drinks, sleep and mental health.
Some topics can be tricky for class teachers to address or you may want children to hear important messages from a visiting speaker. All the sessions are carefully planned to be age appropriate and include a range of learning activities. The content and length of sessions can be negotiated for your school.
Popular topics include:-
● Mental health
● Healthy eating
● Body image
