Wellbeing in Education

The Wellbeing for Education Return programme will support schools and colleges in promoting children and young people’s wellbeing in response to Covid-19.


Supporting Children & Young People's Wellbeing during Covid

COVID-19 is having an ongoing impact on all of us, in our personal life and at work.  

Supporting children, young people and staff wellbeing is especially important during challenging times and we are sharing a range of resources available for promoting and supporting wellbeing in this section.  

What is Wellbeing for Education?

Wellbeing for Education (also referred to as Wellbeing for Education Return WfER) is a government project is specifically aimed for staff working in the education sector, to help share resources for schools and colleges in Suffolk with a focus on supporting staff and pupils with the impact of the pandemic on mental health and wellbeing. However, the information we are sharing in this section is also relevant for a broader audience.  

Watch the below YouTube video outlining what WfER (Wellbeing for Education Return) is and where it sits in Suffolk.
