This focussed programme aims to develop manager’s knowledge, skills and confidence to enable them to fully integrate a coaching approach into the daily management of staff and projects in order to operate effectively, promote a culture of empowerment and engagement and to support creativity in a challenging business environment.
A coaching approach is increasingly well evidenced across the business community and public sector as an appropriate and successful leadership style, creating a ‘win-win’ effect, where staff are motivated and engaged, and work can be successfully devolved, freeing up valuable management time and resources.

This course is open to any professional who works with children, families and any adult who is or may be a victim of domestic abuse.
“Not only is coercive control the most common context in which [women] are abused, it is also the most dangerous” (Evan Stark (2007) Coercive Control. How Men Entrap Women in Personal Life. New York: Oxford University Press).
This multi agency workshop aims to ensure staff have a basic awareness, in order to identify and support victims of coercion and control in the context of domestic abuse and safeguarding adults. Now in existence for 5 years, The Serious Crime Act 2015 created the offence of controlling or coercive behaviour in intimate or familial relationships, and it carries a maximum sentence of 5 years’ imprisonment, a fine or both.
Facilitated by CGL, Sussex Police, ASC and ESSCP, this is an opportunity for staff to learn about the nature of coercion and control and how it permeates throughout society. Additionally, you will have the chance to share your own experiences with colleagues from across East Sussex, making the most of the opportunity to consider how best to deal with these challenging and complex cases.
Please note you must have completed the following 3 Domestic Abuse e-learning modules before attending:
Domestic Abuse - Foundation Module 1: What is domestic abuse?
Domestic Abuse - Foundation Module 2: Impact and building resilience, and barriers to seeking support
Domestic Abuse - Foundation Module 3: Risk identification, assessment and management
Important Note: Once your place on this event has been confirmed, you will receive a separate email with a link to the Microsoft Teams meeting. Please note this email will be sent close to the day/time of the event.

Build it, Draw it, Write it - Problem Solving with Bar Modelling
Bar models are central to maths mastery, drawing on the concrete pictorial abstract (CPA) approach to learning. A good understanding of how to use the bar model in maths and different bar modelling techniques is essential if you want pupils to do well in their reasoning and problem solving.
This course looks at the progression of bar modelling from Year 1 to Year 4 while also offering some content that takes teacher(s) beyond Year 4 for their own subject knowledge.Essential Information

Governors, including headteachers, and clerks will be able to discuss different approaches and share best practice when resolving complaints. This session is open to any governor or clerk who finds themselves in need of some support or guidance around managing the complaints process. Headteachers may also find this session useful if they need support to manage a complaint at stage one to gain some support in resolving a complaint early so it does not escalate to the latter stages of the complaints process.

This briefing aims to inform governors about the Healthy Schools Programme.
Healthy Schools status: helping schools audit, evidence and gain certification for work around Mental Health, Physical Activity, Healthy Eating and RSHE.
Mental Health, Physical Activity, Healthy Eating and RSHE are four key topics for schools as all pupils return. We know that Schools across East Sussex have gone above and beyond in their support for pupils in these four areas over this period, and the Healthy Schools Award is a chance for schools to gain recognition for this work.
The Healthy Schools approach is an approach used by schools across the UK (and in International schools across the world) to develop a whole school approach to 4 key areas : Mental Health, Physical Activity, Healthy Eating and RSHE. The content is strongly aligned with the latest Ofsted descriptors and provides a clear framework and audit tool to help create a whole school approach for these 4 areas. Schools also gain nationally recognised certification once completed. For the next 3 years the School Health Service will be providing this for free to schools alongside providing support to help schools complete it.
To support the Healthy Schools audit, the School Health Service is also offering free access to the My Health, My School survey. This time saving health and wellbeing survey is an online pupil perception survey that gathers children and young people’s views, behaviours and choices in relation to their health and wellbeing. The survey is available for year groups 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, 12 and 13, as well as provision for pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. This online, anonymous will analyse data responses immediately for you following completion of the survey to provide you with a full report on the data you need about your pupils.
