Supporting emotional wellbeing
Schools, as you know, do not just play a role in teaching and learning. Our school staff in lessons, in the playground, dinner hall and school corridors support children’s emotional and mental health. We want to embed an culture where children can talk about their feelings and emotions and know that it is normal to feel all sorts of things. We wanted to draw your attention to the following webinar so you can also have access to content that can support your child if they need a little extra at this point in time.

My name is Adam and I work for a charity based in Ashford called Dads Unlimited - we support separated families to reduce conflict and to work towards a positive co-parenting environment. We help Dads and Mums who have separated to understand their options and provide them with advice, support and community activities to reduce isolation, loneliness, and support their mental wellbeing. Our ultimate vision is that children of separated families can thrive with improved outcomes.
We run a co-parenting programme called ‘5 Steps to Co-parenting success’. It includes a three-hour workshop (in person, covid-secure) and then a folder of information, tools, and templates, along with the options of ongoing one-to-one support. We have an assistance criteria that means we cannot support any domestic abuse perpetrators and the course may not be suitable for domestic abuse victims due to the emphasis on co-parenting together.
