About the Webinar

Webinar Runtime: 54 Minutes

This webinar will help DSLs, mental health leads, pastoral leads and school leaders to understand how they can support pupil and staff mental health as schools begin to welcome back more pupils from 1st June.

It’s important that schools consider how children will have been affected during their time off. Social isolation has meant many children will have been deprived of social interaction, with recent research suggesting that the loneliness enforced by lockdown has led to an overall decline in life satisfaction for many.

Schools should also consider the mental health and wellbeing of their staff, particularly during a time when they will be expected to monitor and apply new daily routines and practice in what are uncertain and challenging times.

In this webinar, mental health and wellbeing expert Anna Bateman, discusses what the challenges might be for pupils and staff returning to school and provides practical ideas, policy guidance and improvement processes to help schools support their levels of happiness and wellbeing.

Disclaimer: Due to the nature of the current climate and in light of ongoing government policy review, please continue to check the latest DfE guidance on COVID-19 here.
