Practitioner Services

In my experience, children can:

  • Discuss a range of feelings and help each other to extend their vocabulary to describe their feelings;
  • Talk about feeling safe;
  • Identify and describe their early warning signs;
  • Explore the 7 Strategies in PBs, and how the children can use them to keep themselves feeling safe;
  • Independently define who is on their network and review their networks regularly.

As well as providing training for staff, I can provide direct Protective Behaviours input for schools and early years settings.  The input can include one-to-one, child-led sessions,  focussing on the parts of the process the child perhaps needs the most as a starting point.  As well, small group work can be fun, ensuring the children in the group are at a similar stage of development as each other.  I have also done whole class teaching; Protective Behaviours fits beautifully in both the PSED area of learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum guidance, and the PSHE curriculum guidance for key stages 1 & 2.

I can provide bespoke services, keyed into the needs of a child, a setting or the staff, either doing direct work with one or more children, supporting staff who may or may not have had PB training, or a combination of both models.  I have a current DBS check which is registered with the update service.  Please contact me to discuss specific requirements, or talk through the range of possibilities in terms of how Protective Behaviours might be implemented in your school or setting.
