Dear Headteacher

We are a well established training provider in the primary school sector at national level, with a successful track record of delivering short courses for support staff. We are registered with the SkillsActive Code of Practice for Training Providers.

We are pleased to let you know that we are delivering in-school training in your area this academic year for welfare assistants, members of mid-day supervisory teams and teaching assistants.

Our programme is called A Positive Approach to Working with Children and comprises the following eleven workshops:

The Role of the Mid-day Supervisor
Effective Induction for Mid-Day Supervisory Staff  
Managing Children’s Behaviour in Wet Playtimes
Managing Children’s Behaviour in the Playground
Managing Children’s Behaviour (General)
Bully Aware!
Feeling Good! – (Self Esteem for Children)
Including Children in the Playground
Including Children with Additional Needs in the Playground
Positive Language 

A day’s training at your school would involve two of these workshops and costs £800, with a maximum of 20 people at each workshop. Apart from your own staff you would be free to invite staff from other schools. With full numbers the cost would therefore be a very modest
£20 per person per workshop.

Each workshop is of two hours duration and can be specifically tailored to the needs of your school.  We usually deliver the first from 09.30-11.30, and the second from 13.30-15.30, so that the trainees can be available for the lunch hour. However we are very happy to run the sessions at times that fit in with your school's individual timetable.

For a training day to go ahead you would need to provide the following:

  • A comfortable room, with adequate heating and ventilation for up to 20 participants and 1 trainer
  • Adult seating for 20 participants and 1 trainer
  • Interactive whiteboard/digital projector/lap top
  • Flip chart or white board/pen

First Aid Training
We are now pleased to offer your school the opportunity to act as a host for one or half day first aid training courses for yourselves and other schools in your area. As a host school we would offer you three free places on any course we arrange at your venue. If you would be interested in this please contact us as set out above.

Yours faithfully
