Webinar Runtime: 52 Minutes
This webinar will provide senior leaders, headteachers, mental health leads and pastoral staff with practical advice and guidance on developing a mental health action plan reflective of DfE guidance and the impact of COVID-19.
Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSiE) 2020 places a greater emphasis on schools to ensure that mental health is embedded within their safeguarding policy. It states that:
- Governing bodies should ensure they have clear systems and processes in place for identifying possible mental health problems, including routes to escalate and clear referral and accountability systems.
- All staff should be aware of the risks and impact of mental health problems and be able to recognise when children may be experiencing issues and what action to take.
In this webinar, mental health and wellbeing expert, Anna Bateman, discusses what the priority areas are that schools need to address as part of their mental health action plan in order to meet their statutory requirements and support children’s learning.
