£14.99 exc. VAT
By Roy Howarth
Research has found that any one class might contain two to six children with profound social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. Without effective intervention and response, this can have a profound impact on the progress of these children, as well as the delivery of the curriculum to all pupils. Roy Howarth uses his extensive experience and expertise in this field to present practical solutions for supporting pupils with social, emotional and mental health difficulties, as well as alleviating pressures on whole-class teaching and management.
Suitable for all mainstream and specialist teachers, 100 Ideas for Primary Teachers: Supporting Pupils with Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties considers techniques for observation, intervention and differentiation, as well as preventing and dealing with significant difficulties. This fully updated edition will help teachers ensure all pupils can participate fully in lessons, learn more constructively and make better progress.
“Roy Howarth has condensed over 30 years of experience in successfully working with SEMH children into a book that can be read in a night. An essential read for any teacher needing to rethink their approach to working with pupils who sometimes make you question your own ability to teach them anything! This book offers practical ideas to refresh our current practices and enable our most disadvantaged children to succeed.” – Martin Cookson, Secondary Phase Leader in an SEMH school
“Roy Howarth is a dedicated, innovative and imaginative former headteacher whose whole focus is on positive outcomes at all times for his very troubled and demanding pupils.

“A book full of empathy and compassion, acknowledging the high level of challenge both pupils and teachers can face on a daily basis. With practical strategies and advice, this book is a useful tool for both new and experienced teachers.” – Ruth Bodley, Deputy Headteacher and SENCO,
