Coaching for Pastoral Leaders and Year Heads - Developing the skills to support pupil resilience, reflection and well-being and inspire a culture of learning and positive attitudes

pastoral leadersCoaching is about allowing individuals to solve their own problems, find solutions and build on their strengths and successes. This course for those responsible for pastoral care in schools and colleges will enhance the skills that foster resilience, reflection and resoursefulness that ensure pupils learn how to be more independent and self-reliant.

Delivering a pastoral system in a school requires a range of skills that will nurture learners and allow them to grow and progress well throughout their school life. Where those involved in the pastoral process develop the skills and attributes of a coach they are far more likely to be able to support the smooth transition from key stage to key stage, provide support for learners within a year group who are not progressing as they should or understand how certain behaviours arise and can be dealt with. Developing a range of coaching skills will also help the pastoral team when they interact with parents and carers.

Creating opportunities to develop a coaching culture will provide the pastoral team with a strategy that allows for a highly cohesive team approach to the pastoral process fostering excellent communication within the pastoral team, with curriculum teams and with partner schools, parents and the wider community.

The day will include:-

  • Identifying the qualities of an effective pastoral team - skills and attributes required to ensure success with learners and with the team
  • Defining current practice - what works well and what could be improved
  • Examining why coaching is a powerful model to use to ensure the pastoral process supports learner progression, motivation and success at school
  • Identifying and practising coaching skills in relation to an issue or situation that commonly arises in a pastoral setting
  • Developing a strategy for how to implement a coaching culture into the pastoral process
  • Further opportunities to practise coaching skills, specifically the sharing of ideas as to the embedding of coaching as part of managing the pastoral process

Who should attend?

Year heads, pastoral leaders and those with responsibility for transition from key stage to key stage. This is also a good opportunity for partnerships of schools, for instance, where a group of primary or middle partners work closely with one secondary or high school to support transition or similarly from early years and infant schools in to primary.

This event would also support House leaders or vertical tutors where communication across teams is vital in ensuring the well being of learners and where older students may well benefit from coaching so that they can support younger learners.

All our events are centrally located. Registration and refreshments are available from 9.30am for a 10.00am start, and we will finish around 3.30-4.00pm. We always provide lunch.
