Outline

Schools are under a duty to use their ‘best endeavours’ to identify and support pupils with SEN meet their pupil’s special educational needs. Where a pupil has certain types of Special educational Need (SEN) there is an increased likelihood of mental health problems. 

Description

Children with autism or learning difficulties, for example, are significantly more likely to have conditions such as anxiety. Other areas of difficulty include executive functioning skills – the mental processes enabling us to plan, focus attention, remember instructions and juggle multiple tasks successfully; forming trusting relationships; social skills; managing strong feelings e.g. shame, sadness, anxiety and anger; sensory processing difficulties and coping with transitions and change. 
The online world can be even more challenging for pupils with SEND. 

Understanding the link between mental health and behaviour; identifying factors that make some pupils more vulnerable than others and supporting work aimed at pupils with SEND will be covered from attending all three sessions from the Horizons – Maintaining Wellbeing in a Digital World package. 

Outcomes

This course will enable you to: 

  • Understand how the school identifies and meets pupils’ needs, provide advice and support to colleagues as needed and liaise with external SEND professionals as necessary.
