An insightful article in the Independent Schools Magazine that references Fagus and Beech Lodge School and illustrates just how a deeper understanding of social and emotional development in schools can change lives.
A wonderful article by our Educational Psychologist Alastair Lidster in Teach Secondary. It looks at the ways we can support children who do not yet have the emotional and social maturity to connect with mainstream school life.
"“We are embedding Fagus into our setting and starting to use it as a social and emotional developmental goal setting tool. We have found the checklists very enlightening and are now at the phase where we want to use that information to inform our targets, planning and daily practice.”

“Fagus has created a shared language for our children’s social and emotional difficulties and helped us reflect on the underlying reason for some behaviours. We look at social and emotional development in a more nuanced way and can now
firmly pinpoint our pupils’ social and emotional shortfalls, underpinned by science. From this starting point
we set personal developmentally appropriate goals, craft the right inventions and measure progress systematically.
