Facilitated Solution Circle Sessions Spring Term 2018


A solution circle is a group tool for helping people become ‘unstuck’ from a problem or situation by using resources from the people in that group. Each circle follows a set structure and takes just under 30 minutes to complete (see http://www.inclusion.com/ttsolutioncircle.html). When solution circles have been used with SENCos and teachers in the past, they have been found to be an effective tool for moving a situation on through sharing practice and ideas. People who have participated in the group (rather than presented the problem) have also found it beneficial for their own practice.

Educational Psychologists will be facilitating solution circles at the following venues in the spring term for SENCos in DSPL3:

Date Time Venue Facilitator
Wednesday 17th January 9:30-11:00 Thorley Hill SpLD Base Katy Cole
Friday 2nd February 9:30-11:00 Millfield First School, Buntingford Katie Paxton
Monday 12th March 9:30-11:00 Venue in Hertford or Ware TBC Saffron Steele


SENCos can book onto any session. The maximum number of participants for each session will be 12 and the minimum for a group to work will be 4. To book a place, which will be allocated on a first come first served basis, please email me:   dspl3manager@sele.herts.sch.uk
