With the new term beginning for a large proportion of schools across the country, the Anna Freud Centre has produced new toolkits to support pupils and staff to build healthy wellbeing habits in 2022. With the ongoing COVID pandemic and associated disruption within education settings, it is paramount that mental health remains a central focus.
There are separate toolkits for primary and secondary/FE with helpful links to a variety of wellbeing strategies that will enable everyone to develop good mental health habits. There are specific links for students and a section to support staff. With the uncertainty surrounding the start of this term it is a high priority to ensure that everyone feels supported. For new mental health leads within school this is ideal to help them to support others.
