Never before has the social and emotional health of an education setting been more important or valued.  

COVID-19 has had an unprecedented impact on the lives, wellbeing, and mental health of all children, young people, families, teachers, and schools:

  • School Leaders have had to redeploy human and technical resources to support remote learning, whilst at the same time considering the continued schooling of essential worker children and the health and wellbeing of staff with underlying health conditions. They need our support.
  • Teachers have had to switch in a heartbeat to delivering high quality remote learning by whatever means possible, stretching their knowledge and capacity, with the risks of fracturing fragile relationships with the most vulnerable and disadvantaged in their school communities They need our support.
  • The nature of the lockdown experience has had a disproportionate impact on low income disadvantaged children and young people and their families- be it overcrowded family homes, lack of access to assistive and social technologies, childcare, income uncertainty and the intense social pressures that arise from unstable family relationships. They need our support.
