Resilient pupils…resilient parents…resilient schools

Wednesday 23rd January 2017, 9am-12.30pm
Venue TBC

In partnership with Oxford School Improvement, Jean Gross CBE will be delivering ‘Resilient pupils…resilient parents…resilient schools,’ at our spring conference. Jean’s career was as a teacher, an educational psychologist, author and adviser to the government. Until 2005, Jean was Senior Director within the Government’s Primary National Strategy, responsible for its work on overcoming barriers to achievement. More recently, Jean was England’s Communication Champion for Children. During the session, she will look at what makes some of us able to overcome difficulties or disadvantage and succeed in school and life, explore the place of resilience in the Ofsted framework and make links to the hot topic of children’s mental health. She will also consider what can be done in school to develop staff self efficacy and wellbeing in challenging times as well as focus on building parent’s resilience and how to engage disadvantaged and other ‘harder to reach’ groups.

Places are FREE to MSA members (2 places per school) There are a maximum 60 places. Although Jean’s experience is within primary and so the session will be primary focussed, secondary staff are welcome to attend. To book a place on this session, please contact Lisa Jones on 0161 248 1589 or at;
