With exam season upon us, this SecEd webinar – now available to watch back – offered a range of practical tips, ideas and strategies to help school staff support students – both with last-minute revision and also with the anxiety that exams can often bring.


The hour-long debate, which features experts including wellbeing guru Dr Pooky Knightsmith, took place on April 25 and is now available to watch back.

We discuss how we can spot students who are struggling as their exams approach and what kind of “in the moment” interventions might help in the run-up to or indeed on exam day – including strategies to calm and support overwhelmed, anxious or stressed students.

We offer last-minute revision advice as well as tips on self-care in the run-up to exams, including “night-before” advice and things to do on the day.

As well as Dr Knightsmith, the webinar panel includes Gemma Williamson, deputy principal at The Hazeley Academy, Milton Keynes, Alex Smith, deputy headteacher at King’s School, Gloucester, and Sophia Kapcia, an English specialist and experienced teacher and subject lead.
