Here at YES @ Areté Learning Trust we strive to promote an understanding of Specific Learning Differences in order to support students/pupils, parents and professionals.

 

We focus on:

  • the early identification of children and young people’s needs and early intervention to support them.
  • the development of inclusive practice in order to remove
  • barriers to learning.
  • the provision of high-quality training.

 

We offer:

  • support with developing inclusive practice in different settings.
  • solution focused meetings with school staff, parents and
  • pupils to identify barriers to learning.
  • analysis of current provision focusing on impact, individual
  • pupil assessment with comprehensive reporting.
  • support with planning and the delivery of personalised
  • literacy and numeracy programmes.
  • progress reviews in person or by telephone.
  • access arrangements for external exams for KS4 and KS5.

 

We believe that the relationship between schools, professionals and parents is incredibly important, which is why we promote a ‘Parents as Partners’ ethos.

The SEND Code of Practice places great importance on involving parents and children in identifying, understanding and taking decisions about special educational needs. We work with parents, recognising the importance of neurodiversity, to create unique pupil profiles.

For parents be at the heart of decision making about their child, it is helpful for them to be fully informed about their child’s needs.

We liaise with a number of parents support group and offer:

  • bespoke support.
  • workshops, meetings and specialist information sharing.
  • reduced rates on all our training events for parents/carers.

The Importance of Feeling Safe

From Co-Regulation to Self-Regulation. The workshop will help delegates use a neurobiological lens to understand behaviour and support children and young people.

The Importance of Feeling Safe

Summary of the event:

During this event Andrea introduces concepts and practical tools aimed at empowering practitioners within an educational setting. The workshop will help delegates use a neurobiological lens to understand behaviour and support children and young people.

It is generally accepted that self-regulation is the central element in being able to manage the ups and downs of daily life and to have positive physical and mental health, sadly, for a multitude of reasons, we are seeing an increasing number of children and adults who lack the neural agility and skills to do this. Co-regulation enables the development of self-regulation and both concepts pivot on the innate need to feel safe.
In this workshop Andrea will set out the fundamentals of Polyvagal Theory, the science of safety and practical techniques to enhance co-regulation and self-regulation.

Delegates will learn:

  • To understand how the body and brain respond to the myriad of stressors of modern life
  • The importance of feeling safe for wellbeing and learning.
  • How to become aware of your own ‘state’ and how to change your ‘state’
  • To recognise the signs of different ‘states’ in students and young people
  • Ways to co-regulate
  • How to enhance and develop self-regulation

Delegates will return to their daily lives with a different perspective and a new understanding of the behaviours they see and tools to respond in helpful ways.
