How are you identifying those children with mental health needs in your setting during Covid-19?
One of our local secondary schools, Sidmouth College, has trialled a new way of measuring student mental well-being, anxiety and meta-cognition; working alongside a not for profit organisation: ImpactEd
TSSW would like to build a network of primary and secondary schools to help and support each other in the South West with student well-being; learning during Covid; anxiety and metacognition using ImpactEd’s diagnostic tool.
Cost | Max £250 per annum for the diagnostic tool (dependent on number of schools committing). Data management | Held and owned by ImpactEd Time spent managing data | Approximately two hours per half term Students completion of surveys | Via PC or mobile phones 15 minutes once per half term Pupil MWB Network Group | time commitment tbd
Outcomes for the group:
Students identified and offered support within your own school systems
Evaluate support offered to students
Benchmark nationally and locally
Seek local school support where system and approaches appear to be working building capacity
Validated data to support your judgements in managing Mental Well-Being in schools
Detailed feedback and whole school student voice on approaches to learning to enable schools to respond to issues.
TSSW will be hosting an information meeting for schools to find out more about the diagnostic tool and how it has been used in an educational setting on:
Thursday 3 December 2020 | 1500 – 1530 | Teams | Who Matt White | Principal/SWTSA SLE | Sidmouth College Joe McGinn | Head of School Partnerships | ImpactEd Sarah Frame | Assistant Director of TSSW
Please find a flyer attached that was used before the summer to outline ImpactEd’s offer. Note that this is slightly out of date as the diagnostic tool is no longer free, this was part of the pilot roll-out. A price of £250 for a minimum of 10 schools signing-up has been agreed.
To express interest in the diagnostic tool, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact Sarah Frame at TSSW (SFrame@teachingschools-sw.org.uk).
