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 initially includes a Senior Manager or Senior Mental Health Lead. Please see the guidance document below on, ‘Getting started with a Resilience Team’.

Then, together, work through the ‘Stage 1 Assess activity’, which you can download at the bottom of this page.

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.
