Wellbeing for Education Recovery
We know the pandemic is impacting on children and young people's mental health and wellbeing, and that it will continue have an impact in the longer-term. Mental health and wellbeing remains a priority, and we recognise the need to support leaders and education staff to consider their pupils' and students' mental health and wellbeing, look after their own and each other's wellbeing and to identify those who may need additional support.
Using resource provided by the Department for Education, the Leicestershire Healthy Schools programme can continue and expand its delivery of the Wellbeing for Education Return from 2020/21 as it transitions into the new Wellbeing for Education RECOVERY 2021/22 programme.
For the new Wellbeing for Education Recovery programme during 2021/22, there are two distinct programme offers:
1. Leicestershire Educational Psychology Service - Coaching Sessions across six themes for all schools in Leicestershire & Rutland.
2. Wellbeing for Education Recovery for Secondary Schools, presented by Adam Billson (TBC)
Leicestershire Educational Psychology Service Programme
This programme is available to all Leicestershire and Rutland Schools.
Listening to feedback from last year's Wellbeing for Education Return programme, the Leicestershire Educational Psychology Service (LEPS) have designed a brand new dynamic and interactive approach to supporting schools via a series of coaching session across 6 themes.
A total of six sessions (one per term) last up to 60 minutes each will be delivered by one of the Educational Psychologists from LEPS and will provide an opportunity to;
- Explore the lived experiences of school staff through group coaching
- Use a psychological lens to unpick and reflect on pertinent issues affecting your school at this time
- Consider next steps for schools collaboratively
The 6 psychological themes underpinning each of the coaching sessions are:
- Exploring the loss and impact of COVID-19
- Exploring the presentation and impact of anxiety
- Understanding self-harm in children and young people
- Nurturing resilience and motivation within school
- Closing the gap for vulnerable children and young people
- Looking back to look forward --> using a psychological focus of reflection and action planning
