Supporting Children in Kent with Special Educational Needs and Disability

Training For Professionals And Parents

The Social and Emotional Mental Health (SEMH) Specialist Teacher for Sevenoaks delivers a variety of training sessions for teaching staff, professionals and parents including: 

  • De-escalation (Emotional Regulation training). This training aims to develop understanding of emotional difficulties as well as an awareness of ways to support safe practice in schools. Delegates will be taught to how to enable learners to support self-regulation by developing strategies for use in school or at home.

Some great stragtegies suggested that we, as a school, can be put in place.

  • The Boxall Profile, This workshop takes you to the heart of the Boxall Profile and will enable you to develop a precise and accurate profile of a child’s social and emotional needs and plan effective interventions and support activities. We will ensure that individual time is available to each delegate and case studied. You will be asked to complete a copy of the Boxall Profile for a student in your school/setting to bring to the workshop

Motivated to get up and running on the Boxall Profile. Steve is always interested in us getting the most out of the course. Thank you.

  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). This training aims to develop practitioner’s understanding of ADHD, to reflect on values held and to enable them to reflect on implications and possible strategies for classroom practice

Good detailed understanding of ADHD.

  • Adapting the Curriculum to include learners with SEND. This day course is aimed mainly at Key Stage 2 teachers and school leaders and is delivered by the STLS Team. A mixture of information-giving, time for sharing good practice, reflection and workshops will give teachers greater confidence in planning and adapting whole class lessons to include learners with SEND.

Feeling much more confident that small changes can have a significant impact for these children with SEND and will positively impact other children in the classroom.

Most training usually takes place at Valence School and can be booked online

Bespoke INSET and twilight training sessions are also available for school staff on request to the individual requirements of the school.
