Working together to build healthy and happy schools
At Pearson, we are passionate about creating a culture of positive wellbeing and mental health and are committed to working together with teachers and senior leaders to help build healthy, calm and happy schools.
Together we can drive positive change, encourage conversation, and create an environment that fosters wellbeing for pupils as well as staff.
It has now become even more important for students to focus on wellbeing, as many would have probably had a lot of ups and downs and mixed emotions over the past year due to Covid-19.
In the free Return to school with Weaving Well-Being booklet you'll find activities designed to help your students to understand and strengthen their wellbeing so they feel good about themselves in mind and body and strong enough to deal with past, present and future challenges.
Now is a really important time to look after yourself and others.The Wellbeing Zone aims to provide a space dedicated to support all ages. Packed with resources suitable for teachers, parents and young people. You’ll be able to find resources from advice on coping with anxiety to fun activities to support wellbeing.
We know how important it is to encourage a culture of postive wellbeing and mental health in today's enviroment.
We've created the new Mental Health Support in Schools toolkit packed with tips, advice and practical support from SENCos and psychologists on how to support mental health and the general wellbeing of your students.
Co-author Fiona Forman provides an overview of wellbeing in schools and Positive Psychology, which forms the framework for the series. It also outlines the new Weaving Well-Being resources, as well as offering suggestions for implementation in the classroom and more.
