School Health & Wellbeing Project | Wellbeing for Education Return

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 after lockdown and during the pandemic.

There are two elements to the project:

  • Training for education staff
  • Ongoing support for schools until March 2021

This offer is intended for all state-funded education settings, including academies, special schools, pupil referral units and alternative provision.

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.

The Slough Wellbeing for Education Return training webinars for education staff in Slough schools, colleges and other education settings are now open for booking. Schools, colleges and other education settings are asked to nominate one or more members of staff to attend the training webinars. The nominated staff could be one, more or all of the following: the Pastoral Lead, DSL, SENDCo, Health & Wellbeing Lead, ELSA, PSHE Lead, Mental Wellbeing Lead or any other relevant role(s).

Participants must attend both sessions, Webinar 1 and Webinar 2, but can select times and dates at their convenience. It is essential to attend Webinar 1 before attending Webinar 2. Webinar 1 and Webinar 2 should be booked separately. Please click the links below to take you to a booking page for each.
