School Resilience Toolkit

Welcome to the School Toolkit for Resilience and Emotional Wellbeing. HeadStart Kent have developed and piloted this free resilience toolkit to make it easier for your school to implement a whole school approach to resilience and emotional wellbeing.

Here schools will find the resources they need to assess their current approach to resilience and wellbeing, celebrate existing good practice, and put key actions in place to develop their whole school approach even further.

The toolkit can support schools to monitor whole school community, PSHE and other strategies and activities that contribute to improvement priorities.

The School Health Team are supporting schools with the toolkit. Schools should sign up to ensure they have access to the free resources and additional support offered from the School Health Service. The School Health Team can provide free training sessions on using the toolkit. Email them on [email protected] 

The toolkit is designed to be completed by a resilience team within your school. This team should be made up of a variety of staff who are representative of your school’s community, including members of the Senior Leadership Team (SLT), those in pastoral roles, and those in teaching or support roles, who can work through each stage of the toolkit together.
