Bower Grove Support Meetings...

Bower Grove school will be holding two behaviour linked talks for parents, carers and professionals.

Friday 27th April, Matt Evans, Assistant Headteacher at Bower Grove will talk about Behaviour Interventions.

This will provide an oversight of how to de-escalate situations, dealing with anger and understanding how behaviour can stem from underlying needs i.e. can be linked to emotions and perceptions. The talk will provide some practical ideas and thought-provoking changes that may help you to understand the situation better and improve outcomes.

Friday 29th June, Pam Stephens returns to talk about “Behaviour Management – A Parent Survival Guide” and opens with a picture of Nanny McPhee. Parenting is the toughest job in the world and Pam will explain to parents how to hang on to “Parent Power”. There will also be a special mention of Special Needs, ASD and ADHD.

These meetings are open to parents, carers and professionals and there is no need to book.
