Feedback from this course
All members of our school community now communicate with each other respectfully and are clear about the choices and consequences of our actions. Since using the Emotional Health at School approach, we have noted a considerable improvement in the behaviour of our children, which has impacted positively on their attitudes towards learning and outcomes.
“…Significant improvements in pupils’ behaviour. Most notably pupils reported to inspectors that the school provides them with an environment where their talents are nurtured, where they feel safer, and where they know more clearly what they have to do to succeed” (HMI inspection, February 2016)
As a teacher and senior leader at Windale Primary School, I feel Family Links has been a huge contributor in our improvement journey. It is the basis of all of our work, nurturing each other as well as ourselves, which is vital in such a pressurised profession. It has been hugely rewarding to monitor the impact of interventions established to support staff and children in incorporating Family Links values into each school day.
