Sleep – Pedagogy in practice

Good mental health always seems to involve sleep in one way or another.  One stereotype about teenagers is that they’re inevitably lazy, and refuse to get out of bed at a reasonable hour.  But this behaviour is more likely due to the chaotic and demanding neurological developments the typical adolescent brain is experiencing.  It is common for children and young people, particularly those who are in high-risk groups, to have difficulty with their sleep.  Having, and maintaining, good sleep hygiene can help to get sleep and to stay asleep.

Teachers have a role to play in supporting children and adolescents to understand sleep as part of the new RSHE curriculum.  This webinar brings together teachers from a range of settings to consider how they are supporting pupils in the school to understand why good quality sleep matters and how it can be achieved.

Event attendees will have access not just to the event itself but to supporting materials and resources to help them embed effective practice in their schools.

About the ‘Pedagogy in practice’ series

Chartered College of Teaching are delighted to have partnered with ACAMH to present a FREE online training series, ‘Pedagogy in practice’, exclusively for teachers and school leaders.

This is second in a series of FREE online events exclusively for teachers and school leaders, and offer insights into best practice in supporting children and adolescents to understand sleep and the importance of good quality sleep, building on the latest evidence base.  They are brought to you as part of an exciting new partnership between The Association for Child and Adolescent Mental Health (ACAMH) and the Chartered College of Teaching, two charities who are dedicated to supporting teachers to make a difference to the mental wellbeing of children and young people.

These sessions are designed to help close the knowledge gap in a range of topics that now form part of the statutory Relationship, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) curriculum.  We think it is important to help equip teachers with knowledge in areas that may be less familiar to them and to help them consider how they might most effectively deliver these topics to children and adolescents as part of the curriculum. These sessions will build on previous webinars run by ACAMH, attendees are strongly encouraged to watch back the ‘Ask the Expert’ sessions, and in particular the topic of Sleep.

The Association of Child and Adolescent Mental Health (ACAMH) is a unique multi-disciplinary organisation, and charity, established for over 60 years committed to ‘Sharing best evidence, improving practice’. For a host of free resources please visit our website
