`my feeling is that this is what some struggling institutions need' - TES Extra for Special Needs Do you want to know how to put emotional literacy into practice in your school? Emotionally literate schools show better learning outcomes for children, improved attendance, reduced behavioural challenges, good relationships, improved recruitment and retention and have a well-motivated, effective and less stressed workforce. In this practical book, Elizabeth Morris and Julie Casey provide everything you need to begin to create an emotionally literate ethos within your school, and give you tools to develop emotionally literate staff and practices in your school over the course of a year. It is packed with practical tools to help: - you assess and measure the current `emotional temperature' of your setting, and evaluate progress - all staff in your setting develop the knowledge, confidence and key skills necessary for supporting children's social, emotional and behavioural development. It contains a range of flexible training modules for you to create a programme of CPD through staff meetings and INSET that exactly meet your school's needs. School management teams, PHSE co-ordinators, SENCOs, class teachers, LEA behaviour service managers and consultants, and educational psychologists looking for practical ways to make schools more emotionally literate will find all the guidance they need in this book.
