Trauma Informed Schools

TISUK- Trauma Informed Schools UK- is a nationally renowned programme that enables training on trauma and mental health concerns in young people. Miss Edkins has recently undertaken training to gain a Diploma in Trauma and Mental Health-Informed Schools and Communities: Practitioner status.


The training provided key insights into the psychology and neuroscience of mental ill-health and challenging behaviour alongside vital tools and techniques in knowing how to respond to a child’s narrative of painful life events. The knowledge gained will now enable us to have appropriate conversations with students showing empathy and attuning to their thoughts/feelings in order to validate what they may have been through.


As a school, we will now embed the knowledge with all staff over the coming academic year, enabling us to develop whole school cultures where well-being and being mentally healthy are the highest priorities.
