Back to better and kindness teaching resources

We’re continuing to provide support to teachers, children, young people and parents through the coronavirus crisis. These new resilience resources can be used at home or in the classroom. You can also download our schedule to see what's coming up. 

During lockdown we promoted the value of kindness. As children return to school, we now also want to help with the recovery. Through our new resources children and young people will: 

  • prepare for the return to school
  • cope with any changes and challenges (use our back to better journal to keep track and reflect on your journey)
  • reflect on their learning during this time and how it can build their resilience 
  • continue simple acts of kindness

You can sign up to receive new resources when they are ready and please scroll down this page to see what is available now.
