Wellbeing for Education Return is a national programme developed and funded by the Department for Education in partnership with other government departments and an expert advisory group which includes representatives from the Anna Freud Centre and Mind-Ed.
The aim of the programme is to ensure that education staff are empowered and supported to make pupils and students’ wellbeing and mental health a priority during the pandemic. There are two elements to the project:
- Training for education staff
- On-going support for schools to implement the learning and develop a whole school approach to mental wellbeing
This offer is open to all schools and education settings in Slough including academies, special schools, pupil referral units and alternative provision. Further information can be found in the briefing document below.
In Slough, we are making sure that this programme links in with the Mental Health Support Team, the Getting Help Team and other local projects and initiatives to ensure that it enhances and complements the wider work already underway.
