Wellbeing for Education Return - Primary Schools

Wellbeing for Education Return - Primary Schools

Delivered by Steve Harris of Wellbeing Education and Route to Resilience

The Wellbeing for Education Return programme is a fully funded national initiative from the DfE, DHSC, Health Education England and Public Health England.

The aim is to support schools in meeting the emotional needs of pupils and staff during the pandemic.

The programme runs to Easter 2021, and comprises two phases.

  • Phase one will provide training for key school staff to disseminate to colleagues, and provide a chance for schools to connect with local experts and each other to share knowledge and experience.
  • Phase two will be a tailored programme of training and support to meet the needs identified by local schools in phase one.

Launch, Listen & Link events

Over the next few weeks, we are holding a series of Launch, Listen & Link events for every primary school in the county. Similar events are also being held for secondary and special schools.

At these events we will…


Launch key materials from the national programme. These provide research-based approaches to supporting the wellbeing of pupils and staff, alongside practical guidance for implementation.


Listen to the experiences and needs of our local schools. This will allow us to share best practice, and shape the ongoing support provided to schools.


Link schools and services. Following these large-scale launch events schools will be linked into smaller clusters for more individualised support throughout the Autumn and Spring term. We will also be linking schools with services and resources to help meet the needs they identify. Schools will be able to cluster based on common characteristics such as membership of a trust, teaching school or local partnership.

Following the launch event each cluster will have two further structured events designed to address the local priorities identified at launch.

In addition, there will be ongoing email and phone availability for signposting, and three 'drop-in' events each half term for open discussion as required.

The programme uses a Whole-School Approach to achieve maximum impact.

The launch event should be attended by the Headteacher, Deputy or another member of SLT.

Each school can have up to two optional additional places. Typically, these may be suitable for…

  • Pastoral or Healthy Schools lead
  • Governor
  • Head of phase

Each launch event is limited to 100 places. When you select a date for the launch you will be asked if you wish to nominate two further places.
