There are significant mental health challenges facing all schools. With more than 8 out of 10 teachers saying mental health among pupils in England has deteriorated in the past two years, and a recent survey by the National Teachers’ Union highlighting a backdrop of inadequate support in schools, teachers have warned that the sector is reaching “crisis point”.
To help independent schools and academies understand their duties to promote and support the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people in their care, Schofield Sweeney and their partners are inviting staff to attend an educational conference that will address many of the issues faced.
We have been fortunate enough to team up with the Youth Sport Trust, MindSpace, Bright Futures Educational Trust and Every Child Matters Educational Trust and this half day event promises to provide an insight for teachers in leadership roles, designated leads and colleagues into what you can and should be doing to create a mentally health school. There will also the opportunity to participate in an optional Mental Health First Aid taster session run by Bright Futures Educational Trust at the end.
This event is suited for school leaders, HR managers and those who have line management responsibilities. We will offer practical examples, actionable insight, valuable networking as well as a Q&A with our experienced employment and education teams. Our specialist panel of speakers will also be available before and after the conference to answer any queries you may have.
The cost per person is £40 + VAT and includes refreshments, a light breakfast and lunch.
Please note this event is not open to freelance HR Consultants or HR agencies. If you are unsure on whether the event is suitable, please contact a member of the team, who will be happy to assist, by phoning 0113 849 4000 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
