Support Your Primary School Pupils Experiencing Mental Health Issues

Teachers can feel nervous about providing their pupils with mental health support. They can feel under-qualified, inexperienced and lack confidence. The result can be that some pupils’ needs are ignored. But helping our pupils with their mental health doesn’t have to be so hard. This course offers practical ways for leaders to give their school community care and support when they need it most. 

Your Trainer – Emma Meadus

Emma is a Primary Headteacher with a career-long interest in PSHE and SMSC. She studied philosophy and religion at university where she particularly focussed on ethics, morality and spirituality. Emma developed these interests in school becoming a SEAL (Social & Emotional Aspects of Learning) Lead teacher for the local authority. Her passion for children’s well-being and how school should support this has evolved over the years into a simple but effective set of principles and practices. Emma’s school is currently working to achieve the Gold Schools Mental Health Award

What You Can Expect

This course is an on demand video course that you can watch at a pace to suit you. The content is delivered in bite sized videos that will take less than an hour to watch in total. Implementing the ideas will take longer of course!

Whilst the videos are designed to be watched as a series, you might choose to come back and dip in and out of particular modules to refresh your knowledge.

At the end of the course there is a short activity to help you reflect on what you’ve learned and consider how to take it forwards. It’s absolutely up to you whether you decide to do this, but many people who do tell us that it helps them to apply what they’ve learned to their current context and think clearly about what practical next steps they can take to have a positive impact with their new knowledge, understanding and skills.
