Wellbeing for Education Return

Wellbeing for Education Return

Wellbeing for Education Return seeks to better equip schools and colleges to promote children and young people's wellbeing, resilience, and recovery in response to Covid-19. As well as strengthening and building wellbeing and resilience, this aims to prevent the onset of mental health problems and ensure those with pre-existing or emerging difficulties access the right support.

There are two elements to the national project:

  • A new national training package providing guidance and resources for education staff on responding to the impact of COVID-19 on the wellbeing of their students and pupils.
  • Leicestershire County Council to appoint local experts to work with partners to adapt this training, deliver it to nominated staff in education settings locally, and provide ongoing advice and support.

There will be minor regional differences on how the national project is delivered locally - this is to ensure the programme is developed to meet local need. There will also be subtle differences depending on your school setting.


You will find a range of resources that have been produced to support the physical and mental wellbeing of Children & Young People, School Staff and Parents & Carers.

These resources are also available to support the Wellbeing for Education Return Programme
