Anyone do this? Heard of it? Primary or Secondary?

I know my primary school does it but don't know anything about it
Sorry not very helpful

My school does it. Teachers need to be specially trained to deliver lessons. All I know is that all kids from Year 7 upwards think it’s a waste of time.

Ah no, do they? I wonder why?
I work in quite a deprived area and too many of our pupils show huge emotional deficits which impacts on their ability to learn almost daily.
I was rather hoping I'd stumbled across something really worthwhile.

We use the thrive approach at my Infant school. Some staff are thrive trained and they can carry out the assessments - individual or class. Then it shows where the gaps are in the child's emotional development and suggests activities that can be carried out. It's a great approach and really successful in our school. The thrive website explains the thinking and theory behind the approach.

In a previous school the SENCO raved about it. We had three hours training after school. I learnt some children are like crocodiles, some like monkeys and forgetting your passport could make you react badly. We then had to do an online assessment based on general questions for class. I discovered that my year ones sometimes had difficulties in distinguishing reality from imagination. We were left some ideas for circle time.
Such a shame as it had been described as really useful. I think the extreme heat may have put the trainer off.
