As we look forward to welcoming students back to St John’s from their summer break, we’ve been taking a look at the summer term – it was a busy one!
Just before we broke up for our summer break we were delighted to host our latest one-day educational conference. The day was all about how professionals working with children and young people with special educational needs can support their mental-health and build resilience for their futures.
Speakers included Dr Kerry Audin, Clinical Psychologist, Dr Bridget Nicholas, Consultant Psychiatrist, Sue Terry, CAMHS Community Nurse, Callum Wetherill, Teacher and Pastoral Leader, Kate Adams, School Nurse, Adam Summerscales, Past Pupil and last but not least current pupil, Hollie. The feedback from the day was incredibly positive and Hollie was described as “inspirational”. Thank you to everyone who was involved in the day and to all our visitors.
We also had representatives at the National Commissioning and Contracting Training Conference (NCCTC) in Derbyshire, the National Autism Show at Event City in Manchester and the NDCS Deaf Mental Health Conference in London.
