Sleep – Pedagogy in practice


Event type Teacher Exclusive Event

15:45 - 17:00 UK time
Please note this event is for teachers, school leaders, and Chartered College of Teaching Members.


This FREE online event is exclusively for teachers and school leaders, and offers insights into best practice in supporting children and adolescents to understand sleep and the importance of good quality sleep, building on the latest evidence base.

Good mental health always seems to involve sleep in one way or another. One stereotype about teenagers is that they’re inevitably lazy, and refuse to get out of bed at a reasonable hour. But this behaviour is more likely due to the chaotic and demanding neurological developments the typical adolescent brain is experiencing. It is common for children and young people, particularly those who are in high-risk groups, to have difficulty with their sleep. Having, and maintaining, good sleep hygiene can help to get sleep and to stay asleep.

Teachers have a role to play in supporting children and adolescents to understand sleep as part of the new RSHE curriculum. This webinar brings together teachers from a range of settings to consider how they are supporting pupils in the school to understand why good quality sleep matters and how it can be achieved.

Event attendees will have access not just to the event itself but to supporting materials and resources to help them embed effective practice in their schools.

About the ‘Pedagogy in practice’ series

Pedagogy is the method and practice of teaching, especially as an academic subject or theoretical concept. This series gives teachers an incredible opportunity to take part in interactive expert webinars looking at how to teach key topics in school.

These sessions are designed to help close the knowledge gap in a range of topics that now form part of the statutory Relationship, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) curriculum. We think it is important to help equip teachers with knowledge in areas that may be less familiar to them and to help them consider how they might most effectively deliver these topics to children and adolescents as part of the curriculum.

These sessions will build on our previous ‘Ask the Expert’ webinars, and delegates for this session are strongly encouraged to watch these, and in particular the topic of Sleep. All of these sessions plus a host of other free resources for teachers can be found on our Teacher Hub.

They are brought to you as part of an exciting new partnership between ACAMH and the Chartered College of Teaching, two charities who are dedicated to supporting teachers to make a difference to the mental wellbeing of children and young people.
