On the 21st October 2020, NCB collaborated with the six HeadStart partnerships, funded by The National Lottery Community Fund, to present a conference on emotional wellbeing and the return to school.
Each partnership presented workshops, sharing key learning and insight into their own local system responses and interventions in relation to emotional wellbeing and schools.
These local-authority led partnerships include schools, children’s services, public health, specialist health and voluntary and community organisations, as well as close involvement of young people and parents.
The conference was an opportunity to hear national updates from Department for Education and Public Health England on wellbeing in schools, as well as an introduction to the HeadStart strategic programme by The National Lottery Community Fund.
The workshops showcased the ways that the partnerships support schools and local systems to prioritise children’s emotional wellbeing amidst the return of education settings in the context of Covid-19, highlighting key learning and good practice.
