Parent carer workshops & events

Sensory Needs (January 2023)

A coffee afternoon event was held at school with the theme of “Sensory seeking/avoiding”.

The focus of the presentation  and parent/carer discussion which followed was on understanding the different presentations of sensory needs and strategies for supporting children with them, both in school and at home.

The presentation slides are attached below:

 

Smooth Transitions (June 2023)
A coffee morning event was held with a focus on Smooth Transitions.
The participants were mainly from Years R-3 and therefore the focus was mainly on transferring from one class to another, anxiety and resilience.  However, transition to middle school was also covered.

Behaviour as Communication (November 2022)

A coffee morning event was held at school with the theme of "Behaviour as Communication".  

The focus of the discussion was on effective strategies to support children in recognising, understanding and managing their emotions, including the use of Emotion Coaching.  This evidence based approach is used at Russell and has been shared widely with parents, so that parents and staff use a common language with the children.

 

The presentation slides are attached below.

Additionally, a document was shared with parents for recording/monitoring patterns in behaviour.  The ABC table is attached below.  An accompanying document "Behaviour Management at Home" is also attached.
