Code: SGC/18/252 Raising the issue of Weight

Overweight children are more likely to have poorer mental and emotional health, with many experiencing teasing and bullying linked to their weight. They may have low self-esteem, be socially isolated and regularly take days off school, resulting in poor attendance. They are also more likely to become obese adults with a higher risk of chronic ill health, disability and premature mortality. As part of a holistic approach to a child’s health and wellbeing, professionals & practitioners in health, education and social care have a responsibility to help families recognise and acknowledge the importance of a healthy weight. Like many sensitive subjects, it is often the way in which the issue is talked about rather than the issue itself that causes problems for both practitioner and family. The stigma attached to obesity makes it harder for practitioners and families to talk openly and constructively about it. This course aims to build confidence in raising the issue of weight with families. A brief and appropriate conversation can be an important first step towards positive wellbeing.

Code: SGC/19/218 Extending Children's Language and Expanding their World (£) (Cancelled)

This course is aimed at managers, communication leads, experienced practitioners, leaders and room leaders who are passionate about challenging and extending children’s speech, language and communication to narrow the gap and give children a voice and expand their world.

Building children’s vocabulary is critical for developing good language and communication skills. It is often a high priority especially when working with children from disadvantaged backgrounds. Evidence suggests that approaches need to be both implicit and explicit and vocabulary needs to ensure there is both depth and breadth of word knowledge for children to develop and improve their memory to generalise in situations and to expand and engage in the world around them. The more words a child hears, the better a talker that child becomes. The more a child explores, the more they wonder. Both the quantity of words and also the quality of conversations influence the ability to be a good communicator as a lifelong tool for the future.

How do we embed opportunities to develop children’s self-regulation and how they can motivate themselves to engage in learning? How do we use the teachable moments and develop learning based on accurate information, collected through observation and assessment to ensure children receive appropriate challenge and support?

We will explore how to extend children’s language to infinity and beyond.

Speech, language and communication skills are fundamental to the development of learning and social and emotional well-being. They are essential to support the development of skills for life and work.” The Communication Trust: Every Child Understood (2008)
