How can staff be supported during this time?

Schools have done a magnificent job adapting and dealing with a range of competing priorities. We know this process has not been straightforward and we are aware of the toll it has been taking staff. These resources are here to support the wellbeing of staff during this time.

How do I support my students?

It can be hard to know how children and young people are coping at the moment, so it can be useful to focus on acknowledging how they're feeling to help them develop a sense of hope and resilience in the future. Our resources can be downloaded and used in class to support all young people at this time.
