Beyond Fed Up

Suicide Prevention resource ‘Beyond Fed Up’ has been written by teachers for teachers, with the intention of enabling classroom teachers to tackle this sensitive subject. It aims to help young people understand their own mental health, to build resilience, know ways in which they can support other young people who are having a difficult time and to recognise when they need to seek help.

Counting Sleep

The Gloucestershire Online Pupil Survey indicates that many of our children are not getting good enough sleep to be refreshed and ready for learning.

24% of Y6 pupils report regularly going to bed at 10pm or later.

27.4% of Y4 and Y6 report taking 2 or more hours to go to sleep once in bed.

15.8% of Y4 and Y6 spending this time in front of screens (TVs, computers, devices)

47% of secondary age pupils report sleeping for less than the 8-9 hours NHS Choices recommendation to function at their best.

Use of electronic devices and TVs close to bedtime may contribute to disrupted sleep for children and young people. Good sleep has proven advantages for memory and performance. Sleep releases growth hormones and helps the body and mind develop well; it enables the brain to make sense of the day's events and helps us to keep emotionally balanced.

There is increasing evidence that too little sleep in children has a detrimental effect on their growth, attainment and mental health.  Good sleep habits can be laid down during childhood and this resource aims to teach children and young people how to get a good night's sleep.

Creating Positive Playtimes - Primary Focus

                     This interactive CPD session shares the implementation, and outcomes, of GHLL’s positive playtimes practice. With the introduction of zoned playgrounds, that directly link to the ‘5 ways of wellbeing’, incidents of isolation and poor behaviour have dropped dramatically. These zones not only provide a wellbeing boost for all pupils, but also through planning with the midday supervisors, enable more vulnerable pupils to get targeted boosts in their specific areas of need. This Positive Playgrounds practice not only gives schools the tools to target pupils who need wellbeing boosts, but also shares what wellbeing is, why it is important and how to assess the wellbeing impact you currently have on your pupils.

Get ready to connect, be active, know yourselves, learn something new and give your time!

Getting Court for Teachers/ Lecturers

Gloucestershire Healthy Living and Learning have been offered a unique opportunity to invite secondary teachers and lecturers to visit Gloucester Crown Court whilst it is in session. This will provide educational professionals with a unique insight into the English Criminal Justice system, support and inform the teaching of The Law, PSHE and Citizenship. As you know our ‘Getting Court’ scheme has been offering this opportunity for students for many years. Judge Tabor is very keen to offer teachers the same chance! There will be an opportunity for teachers to ask questions of Judge Tabor during the morning.

 

Message to all teachers from Judge Jamie Tabor:

“Getting Court has now been running for 5 years. Different schools attend Gloucester Crown Court each month and learn about the rule of law and how the Criminal Justice System works. They watch real cases and see real defendants being sentenced. Sometimes they observe a jury returning with a verdict.

What has become very clear is that teachers who themselves attend know very little about how the Criminal Justice System works and those who have attended have found the morning both interesting and rewarding. I am passionate about explaining to all-comers how the system works, how it affects everyday life, its strengths and weaknesses and the type of people who find themselves in the dock.

Please come along to Court. I think you will find it personally interesting, and it will give you information to help keep young people informed about our judicial system”.

 

Places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis, initially at one place per school/college. If you would like to attend this event at Gloucester Crown Court on Friday 9th February then please email ghll@gloucestershire.gov with the name of the person who would like to attend.

Give and Get - Sexual Consent Resource Training

The GHLL Team would like to invite you to our training session, the focus of which is the GHLL ‘Give and Get’ teaching resource covering sexual consent and healthy relationships.

A survey of children and young people conducted by the Sex Education Forum, has found that almost one in three young people say they did not learn about consent at school. 

It’s important that young people can take responsibility for consent, that they understand it’s not just about words, but also body language and capacity and that they are able to explore what ‘yes’ does and doesn’t look like.

We hope teaching about consent helps to give them the confidence to have a conversation and not to feel pressured, in response to this, in conjunction with Rape Crisis and GDVSAP, we have created a resource that addresses all areas surrounding consent.

PinK/GHLL Review Workshop

GHLL Review

Are you new to this or is your accreditation up for renewal?

In order to gain the Gloucestershire Healthy Schools or the Gloucestershire Healthy FE accreditation, you need to complete a Review, which we have designed with a view to minimising the bureaucracy previously associated with the national Healthy Schools reporting forms.

It is intended to help you capture the essence of what it means for your school to be a Healthy School, or your college to have a Healthy FE accreditation. Primarily, it's a self-assessment checklist enabling you to celebrate what's working well and to identify areas where you might want to take some action.

This session will be lead by GHLL Lead Teachers to give you practical support in this area.

Primary Mental Health

A valuable training opportunity as part of our response to what CYP have said in the OPS about emotional health and wellbeing as well as something that will count towards schools accreditation for GHLL. This course will lift the lid on the mystery that surrounds mental health and shows teachers and support staff how to deliver sessions that encourage children to talk about mental health.

Delegates will each receive a copy of The Primary Mental Health Handbook. It is a very comprehensive resource with background reading and information, a DVD and lesson plans for Key Stage 2. The handbook contains all the worksheets and plans that may be photocopied and staff attending the training will have the opportunity to try out some of the activities to enable them to feel more confident.

Please note that the £30 GHLL charge for this course is a contribution towards the cost of the Primary Mental Health Handbook.
