Once you have all of the information gathered from the Stage 2 activity you will be able to populate your Resilience and Emotional Wellbeing Record with your planned activity. This should include the origin of the action, who is responsible, what the action is, the expected outcome, when you expect to implement or make the change and how you will evidence that it has been implemented or effective. The tool is aligned to the 8 principles and will be the working tracker/log for the duration of the toolkit cycle. You may want to refer to the Award Criteria document during this stage to help you to understand what is required to achieve the award. The case studies are also a useful resource to help you to understand what kinds of activities and approaches are included in a resilient and emotionally healthy school. You may also want to look in the resources area to find examples of surveys, curriculum and learning resources and helpful guidance and tools that can become part of your plan. Ideally you will spend a good few months implementing and tracking the progress of your plan before moving onto stage 3.

Top tip: do not enter Stage 3 until you have fully implemented your plan and have evidence that supports this. You may wish to use a Resilience Team meeting to check off the Award criteria against your plan. Assessing your ‘readiness’ for review.
