Focus on students’ mental wellbeing
Students’ mental health and wellbeing will be the focus of the first two lessons for every student as they return to school this week.
TCA’s Mental Health Lead, Mrs Morley, has prepared lessons that will be delivered to each year group, encouraging students - and teachers - to share their experiences of lockdown as well as any worries they may have about returning to school. The main aim is to encourage students to connect but also to provide evidence that they are not alone in how they feel.
The lessons include techniques to stay positive and coping strategies for stress and anxiety, along with signposting to different organisations which can offer help.
