A framework for emotional and social development
Noun: Latin Fāgus (“beech”) – The Tree of Learning
The Fagus Framework is underpinned by a theoretical base in child developmental theory and was principally developed for pupils at Beech Lodge School, many of the children there have attachment and developmental trauma-related difficulties and have been adopted from care, but Fagus has a wider application and can be used with many school-aged children.
The Framework enables an educational setting to reflect on children's behaviour and indicates underlying unmet needs, put a robust assessment, planning and tracking process in place for pupils that may be struggling with a range of social, emotional and behavioural issues as well as understand their social and emotional current level of development across many domains and provide a structure to create SMART social & emotional goals and interventions.
