How can schools work effectively with children and young people who are at risk of exclusion? This course provides a brief outline of the legal position of schools with regard to exclusion and children’s educational entitlement.

A central part of the course will be to look at the importance of the teaching relationship and its role in engaging children who are experiencing difficulties participating in school life.  We will then consider a range of strategies and approaches aimed at engaging these children in school. 

We will look at the place of any learning or social difficulties or disability the child may be experiencing, and the possible effects on the child’s engagement and self esteem.  We will then consider a range of approaches and strategies to help the child engage in their learning.

By the end of the course you will have:

  • Considered the legal position of schools in relation to exclusion and children’s entitlement to educational provision
  • Explored the importance of the teaching relationship in particular to children at risk of exclusion
  • Devised an individual timetable implementing a range of approaches and strategies
