Developing a whole school approach to mental health and wellbeing with The Self Esteem Team (AM session)

08:30 - 12:00, 1 February 2019 Birmingham

"Thought-provoking and engaging. Some excellent strategies for supporting positive wellbeing with our pupils."
Past delegate, 2018

Creating a school or college environment conducive to good mental health isn’t always easy, particularly as no individual is the same.

These half-day seminars will help school and college leaders identify ways to build an environment where the wellbeing of students and staff is at its heart. ASCL is delighted to deliver this session alongside Nadia and Grace of The Self-Esteem Team (SET).

SET has considerable experience of working with students, teachers, parents, and mental health experts and translate this experience into learning objectives that are both attainable and fun. 

Delegates will have a unique and invaluable opportunity to find out first-hand from Nadia and Grace how to create cultures which facilitate good mental health for both staff and students, as well as cost-effective solutions that encourage a whole-school approach to issues such as self-esteem, body image, depression, anxiety, and stress. 

ASCL’s Parliamentary and Inclusion Specialist Anna Cole will set the scene regarding the policy landscape point to the evidence, and share tools to help school and college leaders design and embed a whole-school approach to mental health and wellbeing.

Delegates will:

  • understand the big issues, policy context and government proposals

  • learn techniques to foster and build a culture that values and promotes positive and open communication and relationships which value wellbeing across the school

  • receive tools to help build an evidence-based, strategic approach to designing and embedding a whole school plan with manageable and deliverable actions

Suitable for all senior leaders in schools and colleges.
