Event Description
Parents/carers are key partners when it comes to the emotional health and wellbeing of pupils. As we develop our curriculum to teach positive mental health it will be crucial to involve parents/carers in understanding what we are teaching and why. In doing so, we not only help our pupils but also share positive strategies that may benefit the whole family.

This session will highlight content and methods to involving parents actively in the emotional wellbeing journey of their children and draw on good examples from schools and authors.
