About the Webinar

This webinar will provide headteachers, school leaders, subject leads and teachers with practical advice and guidance on building a recovery curriculum that best supports children on their return to school.

The government have confirmed a staggered return to school commencing on 1st June. That means that many children will attend school having socially isolated for over two months and having suffered different levels of disruption to their normal learning routine.

Every child’s experience of covid-19 will be different and the impact of so much loss, both to social norms and daily structure, may not be felt until their return.

In this webinar, Barry Carpenter, CBE, Professor of Mental Health in Education and author of the Recovery Curriculum, explores how schools should implement a curriculum which is more holistic, based on compassion and personalised to children’s needs to re-engage and re-integrate children back into classroom learning.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding what the recovery curriculum is and the benefits of successful implementation

  • Recognising the impact of losing social interaction and daily structure on children’s mental health and their holistic development

  • Identifying the 5 Levers of the Recovery Curriculum and taking a more systematic, relationship-based approach to re-establishing children’s learning

  • Understanding how to build a framework that is more personalised and considers the needs of children, their wellbeing and which promotes positive development

  • Using your school aims and values to guide your judgements and applying your own expertise to help children recover any sense of loss

Strong truths to face

Excellent webinar, focused around the REAL importance of a recovery curriculum. This webinar generated many thoughts around the wellbeing of all our community members. Some hard truths to face and deal within the education sector over the forthcoming year. From this I will take a bold stance on considering student development for lifelong learning not just within our school setting. Thank you

People not Robots

This just makes sense. Instead of rushing to catch-up. Stop and ensure the optimal learning conditions.
Janice Redman-Leverone, - Madeley High School


This was a good webinar on how pupils will feel when they get back to school and how we can help them.
Matt Clark, Teacher - Burlington Junior School

Very informative and reassuring.

I thought this was very informative and reassuring. Lots covered in a very clear way with plenty to think about moving forward. With such a big focus on the logistics of returning to school at the moment we must not forget the mental well-being of our children - this video gives you plenty to think about and discuss at school to ensure a transition back to school can be as smooth and as positive as possible for our students.
