Healthy Schools

Social and Emotional Health

We support schools to improve children and young people's social and emotional health and to reduce bullying.

Social and Emotional Health is an extremely wide and diverse topic area and it is important that schools consider all aspects of the school day: including ethos and culture, curriculum, teaching and learning, discipline and reward, environment, support services and targeted interventions.

Please find a full list of training and resources available to support the development of Social and Emotional Health below.
