Stage 1: Assess

This is the stage where you will assess as a team your school’s approach to resilience and wellbeing. You will consider what you already do well, where the evidence can be found, and what the gaps are.

Firstly, it is really important to establish a resilience team which includes a Senior Manager or Senior Mental Health Lead at the start. Please see the guidance document on getting started with a Resilience Team.

Then, work through the Stage 1 Assess activity with your team.

Make sure to update your Resilience and Emotional Wellbeing Record spreadsheet making notes within the blue Assess stage as you go. This document will be revisited at each stage of the Resilience Toolkit.
