Behaviour Conference

Knowing Your Children: Are They Able to Learn?

Behaviour Conference

Tuesday 24 November 2020 | Sandy Park, Exeter | 09:00 - 15:45

A key Ofsted question is ‘Are your children able to learn?

Learning behaviours and wellbeing are intrinsically linked and the current Ofsted framework puts an increased focus on pupil well-being, behaviour and attitudes.

Students who are anxious, angry or depressed don’t learn; people who are in these states do not take in information efficiently or deal with it well” – Daniel Goleman

This conference will explore relational approaches that seek to meet the needs of all our learners, including children at risk. Keynote speakers and workshop leaders will help you develop universal provision within your setting that will benefit key individuals and all other children through:

  • Developing and maintaining threads of connection
  • Establishing classroom steadiness through co-regulation
  • Promoting a sense of calm in our learning environments


Key Reasons to Attend

  • To appreciate the value of relational versus behavioural approaches
  • To learn practical co-regulation skills
  • To network and share ideas with colleagues from a variety of settings
