Psychological Safety in School CPD
What are the concerns?
For many children, school should be a place of learning, growth, and discovery. However, for some, it can be a place of struggle and frustration. Issues such as poor communication, conflict, trauma, bereavement, poor attachment, breakdown in family relationships, and cognitive development can prevent children from functioning effectively at school and achieving their full potential. These issues can impact their confidence, self-esteem, and ability to form positive relationships with others, making it difficult for them to thrive both academically and socially.
The consequences of these issues can be devastating, affecting not just a child’s school life but their entire future. Children who struggle at school are more likely to experience low self-esteem, mental health problems, and difficulties in their personal relationships. It is our responsibility to ensure that every child has the support they need to overcome these challenges and reach their full potential.
