BMS Staff Conference

On Monday 21st and Tuesday 22nd February staff enjoyed a conference based on Positivity and Wellbeing. We listened to an engaging keynote speech from motivational speaker Gavin Oattes who humorously balanced personal anecdotes with an inspiring mantra for maintaining a positive outlook on life. This was followed by faculty reflection time where we discussed how to assimilate this into our lessons to engage and enthuse our students.

We also heard from members of our SEND team who provided us with information relating to key aspects of SEND that will help us support the varying needs of our students. We then had the opportunity to work together in our faculties to discuss ways to implement the different strategies to help us support our students.

Tuesday focussed on staff wellbeing and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the colleagues who ran activities and contributed to such an enjoyable and informative two days.
