This episode takes a practical look at how primary schools can support vulnerable pupils, including looked after children and those living with trauma and adverse childhood experiences.

We ask what form ACEs and trauma can take, what impact they have, and what being a trauma-informed school involves.

We consider therapeutic approaches and how to create calming classroom environments.

We discuss: making behaviour management more effective and less reactive; the common mistakes schools make and how can we avoid them; responding to emotionally based school-based avoidance; and helping vulnerable children to successfully manage their emotions at key times of the day.
