Mental health and wellbeing in secondary schools: Preparing for recovery
This tool is intended to empower schools and colleges to support and prioritise students’ wellbeing in the light of the coronavirus pandemic, as well as putting in place sustainable changes for the longer term, based on the local context and staff capacity.
The tool builds on the eight principles set out in Public Health England’s guidance: Promoting children and young people’s emotional health and wellbeing: a whole school and college approach, and shows how schools and colleges can promote and support mental wellbeing through all aspects of school and college life. The tool is designed for school and college senior leadership teams to support them to build on their current practice.
We hope this tool will enable Senior Leadership Teams to feel supported and informed about the range of mental health and wellbeing resources available, facilitating a high-level conversation about practical steps the school or college can take to support staff and students with their wellbeing.
