Mental health and wellbeing in primary schools - preparing for recovery
As schools prepare for children and young people to return in September, supporting and prioritising mental health and wellbeing will be more important than ever.
This tool has been developed by the Schools’ Wellbeing Partnership in consultation with the Department for Education, to help primary schools to work through the key considerations to support mental health and wellbeing as all pupils begin to return to school full time.
The tool is structured around key principles that help embed wellbeing holistically across school settings, including leadership, environment and culture, curriculum, student voice, staff development and identifying need.
It includes practice examples, signposting to training for schools and teachers and resources for further support to help schools plan and prepare for pupils to return and rebuild the school community.
