Digital course: The Emotionally Safe Classroom

Create a Safe, Productive Learning Environment For You And Your Pupils

  • Examine your role in the classroom and how it can have a significant impact on your pupils; you are the decisive element
  • Investigate “The Big Ask.” What do we really ask of children every day? Is it realistic? And why might they not be able to do it? How will this affect your teaching style?
  • Reflect on and better understand your experiences in the classroom and how you could improve communication and dealing with difficult situations moving forward

Course Content

The Emotionally Safe Classroom is a video-led course split out into five different modules that last roughly 50 minutes each. There will be periods set aside for reflection during each section and you will be provided with a Reflective Journal to support your learning throughout. Each module includes taught content and activities for delegates to complete before moving on.

It is suggested that delegates work through the course over a five week period in order to process and implement the learning.

why is this topic important?

Studies have shown that learning, socialisation skills, higher level thinking, problem solving, organising and planning are more likely to occur in the brain of the emotionally secure child who feels safe in their classroom.

Crucially, this course will support you to:

  • Create an environment in which your pupils can feel safer and more secure and therefore have more opportunity to flourish under your care
  • Identify and support the children in your class who may be surviving, rather than thriving for a variety of different reasons. We will discuss and examine specific examples that you might face day-to-day
  • Create an environment where all children, whether thriving or surviving can feel secure and safe, no matter what external issues they may be facing

This course is about helping your children to feel safe, but you will gain valuable transferable skills and a fantastic personal development opportunity.
