Research shows there is a strong correlation between domestic violence and alcohol misuse and both can have a significant impact on children and young people. This one day course aims to explore the impact of parental alcohol misuse and the associated issue of domestic violence on children and young people. Rory is an interactive alcohol education resource which helps primary aged children to understand parental alcohol misuse. Rory tells the story of a dog who gets confused when his owner begins acting differently towards him. As the story unfolds it becomes clear that his owner’s change in behaviour is due to drinking too much alcohol. The story addresses key issues such as friendship, trust, keeping secrets and feeling safe. In addition we also have Little Mouse Finds a Safe Place. When children have experienced or witnessed domestic abuse and violence, they are frequently left with many confusing and worrying emotions. They can feel responsible, guilty, ashamed, angry with themselves and their parents, frightened and insecure. They need to be enabled by empathic adults to safely express and understand their experience, and to work through and make sense of their feelings. Little Mouse Finds a Safe Place is a children's storybook designed to help professionals support children who have witnessed domestic violence. The book is written by co-trainer and therapist Ann Dix, who has more than 20 years’ experience of working with children and families who have experienced domestic abuse.
This one day, interactive course provides delegates with an overview of emerging issues in PSHE and provides them with the opportunity to sample activities which can be used in the classroom to support delivery within PSHE.
This course is aimed at leaders and teachers in primary school settings, helping to increase their confidence in approaches to teaching SRE. Delegates will also have the opportunity to discuss and view suitable resources.
A training event for PSHE subject leaders in primary and secondary schools and settings
The Health and Wellbeing Service have created a set of 4 FGM lesson plans, aimed at KS2 & KS3 boys and girls. The lessons provide an opportunity to explore the issue of FGM in a safe, gentle, age-appropriate and culturally sensitive way in the context of who to go to for help, rules and laws, human rights and bodily integrity. This training will focus specifically on how to teach FGM in the classroom rather than the background to the issue. It will be a hands-on session where staff will have the opportunity to trial some of the activities from the lesson plans. All delegates attending the training will receive a set of the 4 FGM lesson plans.
The Leeds PSHE network meetings are for all settings (Primary, Secondary, Special Schools and PRUS’s). Each meeting will host a range of presentations from external providers and charities, informing settings about new resources and services. Current issues relevant to all settings and themes are discussed as well as sharing new resources.
The vision of the AET is for young people to enter adulthood with a balanced understanding of alcohol by equipping them with the knowledge and skills to make responsible and informed choices. The TAA programme is shown to effectively raise the age of onset for youth drinking (currently age 14). Early regular use is associated with lower academic attainment and other risk taking behaviours. Through using the programme we hope to: • raise the age of onset for youth drinking • reduce binge drinking and drunkenness and its associated harms • reduce the amount of alcohol related illnesses and harm in adulthood Each delegate will receive the new full resource (including the SEND resource), online access to SEND PowerPoints, full colour emoji laminates to use in groups, picture and story led resources, a DVD of 4 BAFTA award winning films, lessons and activities
For all primary staff planning to, or currently using the new PSHE scheme of work in Leeds.
** FREE hard copy of the 'DO' SRE resource for every delegate attending** Delivering great Sex and Relationship Education (SRE) isn’t about being an expert. It’s about using effective teaching skills to listen, not tell; to make it about them, not us; and to include absolutely everyone, whether they plan to have relationships and sex or not.
This course is intended for all secondary schools. It will update schools on the latest developments within SRE and PSHE and allow schools to update their policy to reflect this.
Oh Lila is the story of Lila, an adventurous young hare who breaks the rules and gets herself into trouble before seeking help from the wise old hare. The moral of Lila’s story is that if children get into trouble or make a mistake, it is always better to speak to someone they trust to help them. The story aims to build resilience and protective factors. It promotes social support through raising awareness of how to resolve a problem and develops the self-belief to do so. Whilst the resource does not mention alcohol, it has been primarily developed to support children and young people who are affected by someone else's drinking. However, it can easily be used as a basis to introduce issues such as FGM, child sexual exploitation and domestic violence, through encouraging children to talk to someone they trust if they are worried. The Oh Lila resource pack provides a range of materials based on the characters and themes of the Oh Lila story and is a flexible and interactive tool that can be used in working with children to empower them to seek help, be able to identify adults who can provide that help and to assist in the development of new skills which will help build resilience
