About the Webinar

This webinar will provide school leaders, headteachers and all school staff with practical advice and guidance on how they can support the mental health and wellbeing of pupils during the COVID-19 restrictions and Christmas period.

Evidence suggests that national lockdowns and local restrictions have impacted on children’s wellbeing. A YoungMinds survey carried out towards the end of lockdown 1.0 found that 80% of young people agreed that COVID-19 had made their mental health worse. 87% of young people felt lonely or isolated.

With the festive season upon us and tighter measures still in place, seeing friends, family and re-uniting with loved ones is much harder, which will only heighten feelings of loneliness and isolation.

In this webinar, mental health and wellbeing expert, Anna Bateman, explains how schools can look out for the signs that pupils may be experiencing wellbeing issues, how they can help them cope with feelings of separation and what techniques they can implement to help build their resilience.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding what the impact of further restrictions during the Christmas period can have on children’s mental health and wellbeing.

  • Recognising how loneliness and isolation can affect the way children behave and understanding when to address concerns.

  • Identifying what concerns children may have during the Christmas period, how to build resilience and recognising the benefits of self- and co-regulation.

  • Understanding techniques and activities you can use that can help children of different ages to cope with feelings of loneliness and isolation.

  • Addressing the importance of communication with parents with a link to an additional video that schools can share with parents to help support children’s wellbeing at home.
