Partnership Working




This workshop will be delivered by Graham Quinn. Graham is the chief executive officer of the new bridge MAT. He is also the National SEND lead for the schools, students and teachers network (SSAT).

During this session, Graham will explore a number of curriculum developments that have proved to be successful within the MAT. He will introduce the concept of 1:1, where every young person and staff member uses Ipad technology to enhance teaching and learning. This part of his presentation will explore QR codes, and provide example Apps that support learning. He will then give examples of how curriculum pathways (14-19) have transformed young peoples destinations. He will describe how staff in schools use a unique progress and assessment model (the NB dashboard) to track the development of children and young people. There will be several question opportunities throughout the presentation, along with video clips and the chance to explore any further aspects of the MATs work.


This workshop will be delivered by Dr Sophie Brigstocke. Sophie is a HCPC registered educational psychologist, working with CYP in the York educational assessment clinic. She is also a schools engagement trainer at the Anna Freud national centre for children and families (AFNCCF).

This session will outline the different factors that impact on a child or young persons mental health and wellbeing, as well as highlighting strategies to help improve mental health and wellbeing in a school setting. It will provide tips and suggestions for initiating conversations with pupils regarding their mental health and wellbeing. You will work through practical examples and be provided with advice on dealing with common problems that may arise within the classroom such as managing panic attacks or angry outbursts.
