Join Policy@Manchester and the SMF for a virtual event discussing how we can build better wellbeing in schools across the UK.
The COVID-19 pandemic has spurred a conversation about what matters in society and whether the renewed attention given to wellbeing can translate into policy and practice. But as students are returning to schools, much of the conversation is focused on academic catch-up. Is now the time to take a renewed look at wellbeing in schools? How can we ensure children and young people’s wellbeing is central to the post pandemic recovery?
Join the Social Market Foundation and Policy@Manchester – The University of Manchester’s policy engagement unit – for a virtual event discussing how we can build better wellbeing in schools across the UK.
At the event we will also hear about a new research project led by experts at The University of Manchester, in partnership with the Anna Freud Centre, which is investigating the wellbeing of school children across the Greater Manchester City Region. The study, run in collaboration with a number of partners, will survey thousands of secondary school children in order to provide timely data back to local schools and policymakers which they can use to improve support services. Whilst the project is focussed in the Greater Manchester area, its findings could have national significance and help policymakers to build a better picture of wellbeing in schools.
This is a virtual event and registered attendees will receive a link to join the webinar. There will be an opportunity to submit questions to the panellists during the event.
Follow @SMFthinktank and @UoMPolicy for the live thread.
