Behaviour Conference - Being Good
Thursday 21st November 2019 | Sandy Park, Exeter | 09:00 - 15:45
Being good isn’t just about right and wrong, following the rules or doing what we are told. It is about the whole person, their sense of self, feeling safe, intrinsic motivation, positive relationships and more.
This conference will explore the link between wellbeing and outcomes for children. The key note speakers Sue Roffey and Sue Cowley will draw on their experience of promoting social and emotional learning, behaviour management and creative teaching and learning. Supporting workshops will bring a host of fresh ideas for you to consider and take back to your schools and settings.
