Join us for the next on-line event in our summer series Tigers & Teddies Live! It will be chaired by Gary Robinson, wearing another of his famous bow ties, and Dr. Suzanne Zeedyk, author of the book that sparked the series, ‘Sabre Tooth Tigers & Teddy Bears: The connected baby guide to attachment’, published earlier in May 2020. This week’s topic is Trauma-Informed Schools.
We’ll be meeting the three headteachers whose story is told in the book. We’ll learn how they developed the Teddy Bear Policies that have made such a difference to children’s ability to emotionally regulate at their schools: : St Joseph’s RC Primary, St John the Baptist RC Primary, and Our Lady of Lourdes RC Primary. As schools come out of lockdown, we need to be doing as much thinking as possible about children’s need for relationships and reassurance. This is a great time to learn from the practical wisdom of these three enthusiastic headteachers.
