The SecEd Podcast: Back to School – Supporting student mental health & wellbeing

This episode of The Podcast is the first in a four-part Back to School series offering advice to schools as the autumn term begins.

In this episode we focus on student mental health and wellbeing, offering a range of practical advice for schools and teachers.

We look at how to support the good mental health of students returning to school after the Covid-19 lockdown. We consider also some of the issues that school staff can expect to see in the coming weeks. We also offer advice on spotting the signs of any wellbeing problems and what we might be able to do to support students.

Guests on the podcast include mental health expert and ambassador Dr Pooky Knightsmith and Sarah Birch, regional standards leader at the River Tees MAT in the North East of England, which includes three alternative provisions in Middlesbrough as well as a secondary-age alternative provision in Gateshead.
