Mental health in schools: leadership and wellbeing in primary settings

Part of a series of free webinars on mental health leadership in educational settings

Available to watch on demand

This free webinar took place on Tuesday 7 February 2023 and explored ways to support mental health and wellbeing in primary school settings.

Led by Dr Katy Cole and Ashley Grinham-Smith, our presenters discussed the topic of anxiety and how it presents within school, or through school avoidance, and shared ideas for making school feel like a safe space for learning.

Who is this webinar for?

This free webinar is suitable if you work in a primary school setting. You might be a headteacher, member of the school senior management team, mental health lead, designated safeguarding lead, SENCO or class teacher. If you know someone who might be interested, please do share this event with them.

This event is part of a webinar series. As well as this session, we hosted an earlier webinar that’ll introduce you to the topic of mental health leadership in educational settings. Learn more about the series.

Interested in exploring school mental health and wellbeing further?

The Digital Academy’s Senior mental health lead training will help you develop a personalised plan that will allow you to influence, promote and embed a whole school or college approach to positive mental health and wellbeing.

Hosted online, you’ll learn at your own pace through a combination of interactive learning elements, case studies and live sessions. And, if you work in an eligible state-funded school or college in England, you can receive funding for this course from the Department for Education – meaning your costs will be covered.
