Monday 2nd March saw a visit from Dr Ian Frampton who delivered a training session to the Primary and Secondary cohort titled ‘Build a Brain’.
Dr Ian Frampton is consultant in Paediatric Psychology in Cornwall and Senior Lecturer at the Centre for Clinical Neuropsychology Research at the University of Exeter as well as sitting on the governing body of Probus C. P. School. As a paediatric psychologist with a background in clinical neuroscience Dr Frampton came to Penrice to lead a session based on his research into the effects of the environment on brain development and childhood health and well being.
Dr Frampton’s expertise and experience within this subject proved quite thought provoking.
“The aspects of child psychology and brain function explored during the session have impacted both the way that I plan my lessons and interact with students – it’s been of real benefit to my teaching and student outcomes” Ben Thomas, PE Trainee
