Although some children have returned to school already, for many, the new Autumn term will be their first time stepping into a classroom since lockdown began. Understandably, this may be a strange or worrying time for some children, parents and carers, and schools. We know that supporting children’s mental wellbeing during the return to school is a key priority. To help you, we’ve collected together lots of useful resources in this toolkit, all focused on making sure the return to classrooms in the Autumn is a mentally healthy one.

Mentally Healthy Schools have produced a range of resource for parents and carers, featuring activities and tips for how to prepare their child for re-starting school in the Autumn including daily mindfulness activities, a Summer self care activity pack and resources for dealing with worries.
