Children’s Mental Health Week

In support of Children's Mental Health Week which runs from 6 to 12 February, Thrive LDN are running two webinars on supporting the whole school approach to mental health and wellbeing.. 

The session for primary schools is 8 February 4:00-5:00pm

Supporting the whole primary school approach to mental health & wellbeing

Taking a coordinated and evidence-informed approach to mental health in schools and colleges leads to improved pupil and student wellbeing, which, in turn, can improve learning. By joining this webinar, you will hear from school teaching staff who will share their experiences and examples of how they’ve been implementing this in practice and the positive outcomes of this in their school since.

The webinar will also provide information about accessing Department for Education’s (DfE) grant funding of £1,200 for eligible state-funded schools and colleges in England to train a senior mental health lead to develop and implement a whole school or college approach to mental health and wellbeing.

The session is an opportunity to ask questions and hear from fellow education professionals. There is no cost to joining the webinar, but pre-registration is required.
