The wellbeing of students and teachers is now an educational policy priority. Increasingly, teachers are held responsible for the wellbeing of their students and school managers are expected to support the wellbeing of staff. The ongoing Covid-19 crisis threatens the wellbeing of students and teachers and the onus of wellbeing support has become both more vital and more challenging. This online event will include three presentations. Michelle Jayman and Annita Ventouris of the University of West London will describe research to support primary pupil wellbeing through a mental wellness card game. Emma Clarke and Aimee Quickfall of Bishop Grosseteste University will report their research into wellbeing in primary initial teacher education. Finally, Alex Manning, Richard Brock and Emma Towers of King’s College London will report research that has examined English primary and secondary teachers’ perceptions of the wellbeing support offered in their schools. The presentations will be followed by a panel discussion.
