Spark To Your Success kicked off 2023 with an educational and informative training programme for the staff at Walton School in January.
Having already previously delivered Resilience Training to the school’s staff, Spark To Your Success was invited back, but this time to focus on Trauma Informed Sessions.
Here at Spark To Your Success, we support young people and give them the opportunity to develop high self-worth and inner confidence, so they know exactly who they are and are proud of it. We help them find a clear direction for their future and show them how to make a positive impact on the world around them. By giving the staff of Walton School training sessions, we believe this insight will enable them to support their students in a positively influential way.
Schools are becoming increasingly faced with the need to support students with trauma and mental health support.
Walton School in Stafford reached out to Spark To Your Success for advice and training on how to best care and support their students. We were grateful to talk to the staff and offer them training, as this means we can support a larger group of students within the school, and potentially enable us to collaborate with other schools, when they recognise the significant impact that we can have on both the staff and students.
The topic of trauma and mental health is a sensitive subject and schools do not currently cover this on the curriculum, despite it being desperately needed for the benefit of students and the staff, who can provide help if properly trained. We hope this will encourage other schools to take action and offer their staff training.
Thank you to Walton School for hosting us and for taking the right steps to build a safe space for their students. We received amazing feedback from the staff, and we’re delighted to be returning in July for a second Trauma Informed Training session.
