The Multi-Schools Council was started in 2012 to help break down perceptions towards children with SEND or mental health difficulties. It also provides young people with an opportunity to improve their confidence, develop their personal and social skills and promote important values. The Multi-Schools Council wants to break down negative perceptions about children with disabilities or special educational needs through child engagement. However, the Multi-Schools Council should not just been seen as a resource for children with SEND or mental health difficulties, but instead a community with useful resources for all children, with the added benefit of developing understanding of those who do have SEND or mental health difficulties.
Wellbeing/Concentration sessions - Tomorrow (12th Jan) begins the online offer for children working from home. The Multi-Schools Council will be running four 10-minute sessions via Zoom based on activities designed to break up the working day. These will be at 9am, 10am, 11am & 12pm. All the links are in the word document attached. There will be a new offer each week, the best way to keep up with this is to follow the Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/multischools
Reach out, speak out - There are still places available for an online course designed to improve children's confidence. Places are limited but the information is attached in the flyer and also available on our website - https://www.multischoolscouncil.org.uk/reach-out-speak-out-online/
Are you concerned about your child's safety on the internet and would like advice and support on how to keep them safe?
Free parent’s workshops will look at the online world and how our young people are using it. How they are navigating around restrictions and using the internet without the parent’s knowledge.
