Connecting with our Children

Thank you to everyone who attended our first workshop with Child and Family Therapist Megan Barber. The large number of you attending shows just how important the discussions were. Megan will join us for a follow up workshop after the February half term. The slides, and resources (The Brain Child fridge sheet and No Drama Discipline), are below. The follow up workshop focused on 'Empowering our children whilst transforming ourselves' and looked at the PACE approach to our interactions with our children, something that we use here in school too. Please see the appendices in our Relational Behaviour and Regulation Policy, as well as the slides to that second workshop below.

Supporting you and your child to lead a well-balanced, meaningful and connected life

Principles of Learning!

We had a parent meeting about some basic principles of learning at UPS. It evoked questions about how children are supported, challenged and assessed. If you have any further questions or need the slides (which are below) to be explained in more detail, please do let us know! We also discussed how we are starting our metacognition journey to becoming a Thinking School and Mrs Marsland touched on this at the meeting too. Again, see the slides below...
