SecEd's June Best Practice Focus offers a range of practical strategies for supporting and engaging with your school's vulnerable learners.

Supporting vulnerable or looked after students with complex needs or difficulties around behaviour, emotional wellbeing or social development is challenging.

In this SecEd Best Practice Focus, Darren Martindale draws on 20 years of experience to outline in detail his five golden steps for supporting these learners.

These steps, if fully committed to by schools, can make a real difference to learning and wider outcomes and include identifying barriers, engaging students, building resilience, the right teaching strategies, joined up working, and evaluating impact.

In this Best Practice Focus, Darren Martindale also advises on how adopting metacognition strategies can help this group of learners and he also discusses issues of intrinsic motivation and how this can be fostered and developed.
