Things are really tough right now for schools, lots of staff feel disempowered and tired, children's behaviour is difficult to manage. Things feel inconsistent and chaotic because of the pandemic. Children are stressed, things have been difficult at home during lockdown, things are unpredictable and feel unsafe. This might be their first experience of a traumatic event or it may be one of many! There is so much that schools are dealing with and you cannot do it all alone!
Mental health and wellbeing is more important now than ever. How can you help the children through this time? How can you understand the impact this might have on their wellbeing and mental health? On their behaviour? On their ability to achieve? and what can you do to help?
