Big Thinking with Professor dr. Ferre Laevers

Well-being & Involvement: A Whole School Approach
The Leuven Scales of Well-being and Involvement have become widely recognised within the education sector as a vitally integral aspect of ensuring that children’s needs – especially emotional and cognitive – are being met by provision. Implications that this provides for emotional and mental health – a subject high on the national agenda – as well as the quality of learning means discussion of this approach is more significant than ever.

In this thought provoking and inspiring seminar, Professor Laevers will explore how this approach can be extended to ensure its effective use in the early years and through into primary – and how these tools can be used to identify and overcome barriers to effective learning.

A Whole School Approach: Continuing Child-led Learning Through to KS2 with Prof. Julie Fisher

Course description

Learning experiences in KS2 are almost always adult-led which can disempower some learners. To counteract this effect, this seminar, for headteachers, senior leaders, KS1 and KS2 co-ordinators, considers a whole school approach to learning by exploring a continuum of practical possibilities that enable older pupils to take control of some of their daily learning experiences.

Benefits

  • A clear understanding of the value and impact of a child-led ethos on learning
  • Useful frameworks to assist with planning for change
  • Examples of the impact this change has had in schools
