The STLS want to support schools to reintegrate pupils into school.
It is important to focus on the experiences the pupils have had in lockdown and support their mental health on their return. We suggest the focus for schools should be on well-being rather than the pressures of diving straight into an academic curriculum.
To help support the reintegration process we recommend these links:
The Solihull Approach - trauma training
Return to School - Wellbeing Support
Please find some useful documents you can use to support your pupils to reintegrate successfully.

Supporting the reintegration of Early Years.
Early child development sets the foundation for lifelong learning, behaviour, and health. The experiences children have in early childhood shape the brain and the child's capacity to learn, to get along with others, and to respond to daily stresses and challenges. This has certainly been a challenging time for our pupils so there needs to be careful planning to ensure positive well-being.
