This is a short presentation by Nicola Hoskings, Assistant Head at Penair School in Truro on Transitioning school in a remote and virtual context. Nicola's presentation was shared with mental health leads across Cornwall as part of our work with HeadStart Kernow which is a lottery funded project. We found the session to be valuable and Nicola kindly agreed it could be shared more widely.
Nicola Hosking is an Assistant Headteacher and Designated Safeguarding Lead at Penair School in Truro. Nicola has taught at Penair for over 20 years and joined as the Head of Geography in September 2000. Developing an interest and passion for pastoral work meant that Nicola has undertaken many different roles in school to work her way up to her current position. Nicola is also the Mental Health Lead at Penair and feels that her job is quite possible because she feels very lucky to live where she is. The Cornish coast never disappoints, whether it be the glorious sunshine or the stormiest of seas, the salty air never fails to clear the brain.
