online course: The Emotionally Safe Classroom

Online Course Created By Award-Winning School Support Provider, Services For Education (duration 4-5 hours)

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
complete the course (£120)

How does the course work?

The Emotionally Safe Classroom is a video-led online course split out into 5 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.

Liz Bates, our Emotional Health expert with 25 years’ experience, will talk you through a slideshow packed full of insights, tried and tested strategies and exercises for you to complete.

What will be covered?

Module 1: Exploring the role of the adult in creating the classroom climate.

  • Being the Decisive Element
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Self-reflection
  • Expectations and Explanations (Dr Ross Greene)

Module 2. What we ask of children and why might they not be able to do it!

  • The ‘Big Ask’
  • Attachment and other factors

Module 3. School as a secure base.

  • Do I feel safe?
  • Using the UEA model – Availability, Sensitivity, Acceptance, Co-operation, Belonging for adults as well as children

Module 4. Beyond behaviour.

  • Feelings Thoughts and Behaviour
  • When demands outstrip capacity to cope
  • Survival in the classroom
  • Self-regulation

Module 5. Using resources and next steps.

Each module includes taught content and activities for delegates to complete before moving on. Delegates are supplied with a downloadable course workbook to support the learning and provide opportunities for personal reflection.

Why is this 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.

About Liz Bates

Liz taught for over 25 years before becoming an education advisor specialising in Mental and Emotional Health and Wellbeing.

She has successfully supported many schools in their approach to both pupil and staff wellbeing, providing training and consultancy around emotionally safe classrooms, secure bases for pupils and staff, attachment and trauma, mental health and mental illness, Protective Behaviours, and other issues relating to wellbeing.

Much of Liz’s work is bespoke, creating support packages through dialogue with individual schools. Liz has written 3 books and teaching resource packs for schools and other organisations that work with children.

These have been extremely well received and are used nationally, helping children explore the internal world of their feelings and thoughts, manage anxiety and self-calm. Liz regularly runs workshops and speaks at conferences around the country. Liz also works as a wellbeing advisor for Optimus and a trainer for the Anna Freud Centre in London.

About Services For Education

Services For Education Logo

At Services For Education we provide a wide range of face to face services and professional development opportunities to enhance teaching and champion school improvement across Birmingham.

In 2018, we came to the realisation that, due to budget cuts and time strains on teachers and school leadership teams, face-to-face training courses are not always a viable option for teaching staff.

So, this year we launched our new range of online courses to suit the super-busy educational professionals that are passionate about their CPD, but don’t necessarily have the time to take even half a day out of the classroom.

Flexible and affordable, our video-lead courses can be completed at your own pace, paused and restarted and re-watched as many times as you like.

We currently have online courses covering Safeguarding, emotional wellbeing in the classroom, the Primary IDSR and working with parents, but watch this space.

Alternatively, if you feel you would prefer face-to-face interaction, we do offer a wide range of in-house training sessions and bespoke, centre-based consultations, depending on your needs. A number of these are accredited or validated by external organisations to provide delegates with a nationally recognised certification. Find out more about us here.
