10 ways to celebrate the year
Sometimes it’s easy to focus on what went badly or what could have been improved, but actually, there will have been lots of things that went well in the year. Pupils need to focus on those achievements, but it's also just as important for school staff. Here are some tips to help you celebrate your successes, big or small.
Celebrating achievements lesson plan
This lesson plan can help pupils look back over the year and think about their achievements. It might be something they felt nervous or worried about at the beginning of the year, but are confident with now. It’s a good idea to make this discussion as broad as possible so that pupils are encouraged to value achievements about how they cope and find support, rather than just academic success.

More about self-care
‘Self-care’ is a phrase you’ve probably come across, but what does it really mean?
Judging by what we see in adverts or on social media, we might think it’s all about candles, yoga and luxury bath bombs. We might think it costs a lot of money and takes a lot of time. And we might feel like it isn’t for us. But is that really all there is to it?
We've launched a new campaign to scratch beyond the surface of self-care, looking at how self-care can help you, what to do when it feels impossible, and how you can find what self-care works for you.
