Support for schools
All staff and students will experience some degree of emotional wellbeing or anxiety challenges as they slide back into school life. With a lengthy time away from peers, and new social distancing norms, reconnecting with friendships will be a priority and challenge for them.
Schools should plan to ensure everyone feels included through an inclusive school culture; and that everyone returns to a positive and supportive working environment to help relieve anxiety and fear.
The following guidance will help schools to make decisions on how to support their community’s emotional wellbeing, as well as knowing what to do if a member of the school community requires extra support or guidance:
Emotional wellbeing information, resources and support services for staff
Practical and emotional support for young people with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)
Emotional wellbeing support for young people
Emotional wellbeing support for vulnerable pupils
Emotional wellbeing support for schools including universal and transition
Emotional wellbeing support for primary-school-aged children
Practical and emotional wellbeing support following bereavement
Emotional wellbeing advice, guidance and support for highly anxious pupils
Emotional wellbeing support for parents, carers and families
You can view a selection of categorised resources in the pages above, or download the guidance support pack.
