Our learning communities across the world have been challenged in unforeseen and unplanned for ways by the Covid-19 crisis and the measures put in place to stop its spread. The stress and strain it has put on children and young people, teaching, non-teaching staff and their managers has been intense and prolonged, and the impact will be felt long after a vaccine is produced and made available.
The mental health and emotional wellbeing of everyone connected to learning communities (which includes early years settings and colleges as well as primary and secondary schools and academies, special schools and alternative provision) is paramount. Families need guidance and reassurance; staff as well as learners will need social and emotional support which builds on current practice; and do not forget managers and leaders, sometimes caught between rapid changes in policy and the stark realities of delivery.
That is why Achievement for All will be featuring and celebrating key aspects of its work in the run-up to World Mental Health Day on Saturday 10th October.
Our founder and CEO Prof Sonia Blandford introduces our campaign to put wellbeing at the heart of learning.
We have so much to offer in terms of short, high-impact and focussed coach-led programmes as well as our “classic” immersive two-year school improvement offers.
