INSET days are important for teachers and support staff to work together to improve their practice and develop their skills and knowledge to continually strengthen the work we do with children and young people.
The Bridge, along with many other Bridgend schools have started working on becoming more aware of brain science and how this impacts on children's ability to function socially, regulate emotionally and feel safe to learn and make mistakes. This approach is becoming "trauma informed".
All staff have now had initial training on what this means and how we use the knowledge to support the learners in the Bridge, Senior staff have completed additional study to ensure they are able to lead this across the school and two support staff are undertaking the accredited 10 day diploma to ensure we can better meet the challenges of the complex children placed in the Bridge.
