This webinar will summarise the findings from the first working paper to be published from the Alex Timpson Programme. It covers 24 primary schools who received whole school training in attachment and trauma awareness in 2018 and early 2019, based on an online survey of school staff before the training, and a follow-up survey one year later; all of the data were collected prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. The webinar will focus on tangible changes resulting from the training, from individual staff members shifting their everyday approach to vulnerable children, to broader innovations in practice, or school-wide policy reviews. It will also discuss the reviews of staff about the indirect impact on children and the wider school environment.


Dr Neil Harrison is the Principal Investigator leading the Programme, Helen Trivedi is a researcher on the Alex Timpson Attachment and Trauma Programme in Schools.
