Children's mental health matters

The mental health and emotional wellbeing of children and young people has been widely identified as a growing concern across the UK; in January 2019, inspectors for education services in England (OFSTED) and Wales (ESTYN) began to routinely assess and report on pupils' mental health and wellbeing under the key judgement area of personal development.

Following the disruption to learning caused by the pandemic, education providers are increasingly challenged with the task of leading and developing a whole-school approach to support mental health and emotional wellbeing.
