Pen Green Conference
Understanding Children’s Experience of Change and Transition – A free one day conference for early years practitioners and teachers
Keynote by Anne O’Connor on Understanding Children’s Experience of Change and Transition. This will include vertical and horizontal transitions experienced by young children; with a focus on physical and motor readiness for school from Anna Daly.
To support schools in raising the life-chances of all pupils, a group of six Northamptonshire Teaching Schools, in collaborative with Virtual Schools, are rolling out a training programme. Our aim is to create Reconnect Attachment Aware School Leaders who can cascade vital information to all staff. Funded by Virtual Schools and written by Specialist Leaders, social workers, early years and behaviour specialists, under the guidance of a clinical psychologist, these materials explore strategies to fully engage children and young people with trauma difficulties.
