These 20 practical and accessible modules provide all of the necessary resources to enable you to maintain and enhance the wellbeing of the children and young people that you nurture and support, while also developing staff confidence and whole-school approaches which will support the wellbeing of the whole school community.
This resource provides a knowledge base and set of tools to enable you to support the young people in your care in the most effective and ethically safe manner, drawing on a range of evidence-based approaches that promote mental and emotional health and wellbeing.
