In this SecEd Podcast we speak to three experts about how we can support our most vulnerable students after the Covid-19 lockdown and as they return to our schools.

The focus of the discussion includes looked after children, previously looked after children, those with mental health challenges, disadvantaged pupils, and those with SEND.

The podcast offers a range of practical advice, with themes including the challenges at-risk students may present with, spotting the signs, potential interventions and pastoral support, safeguarding implications and more.

In conversation with SecEd editor Pete Henshaw are Darren Martindale, service manager, vulnerable learners & virtual school head at City of Wolverhampton Council, Phil Denton, headteacher at St Bede's Catholic High School in Ormskirk; and Stephen Phipps, associate dean with Academy 21, a national provider of online alternative provision.
