KEYNOTE: Happy, Healthy, Hopeful

These slides were developed for a face to face event with Essex County Council in July 2023.

Here’s the session overview:

Happy, Healthy, Hopeful: Meeting Needs in 2023

During this fast-paced session, Pooky will walk you through a simple framework for exploring how mentally healthy and inclusive your setting is as well as a myriad of next-day-practical strategies you can take to step things up. The health and happiness of staff will form the starting point and springboard for the session which will go on to explore how we can meet the needs of every student (and staff member) in 2023 and beyond. As well as a chance to celebrate and share what’s working well, you’ll get the opportunity to consider ‘What next?’ for areas of challenge.

If you were there, I hope these are a helpful aide-memoire. If not, I hope they make enough sense without me to be useful. If you’d like to download them, you can do so via this page on slideshare.
