Supporting your child's Mental Wellbeing on return to school

Supporting your child’s Mental Wellbeing on return to school

It is likely that your child will be experiencing some anxieties about the return to school. This is completely normal especially after a challenging and prolonged period of time such as experienced during lockdown. Although we have put in place a number of strategies to support students in this transition, we ask that parents also support in this process. Below are some strategies parents can implement to support your child.

  • Talk about their concerns  - Your child might have worries about returning to school. You can explore these and help them think of ways to manage them (see website link below for more information).
  • Sleep routine -  Help your child return to their normal sleep routine in the weeks before school starts again
  • Talk about school - Start to talk through the daily routine so they know what to expect when they return.
  • Coping strategies - Model coping strategies you use when feeling stressed such as reconnecting with friends before returning, doing regular exercise or using breathing techniques. If it applies, you could share your own worries and feelings about returning to work and ways you are managing these feelings. 
  • Make yourself available as much as possible - Children may want to come and “debrief” but maybe not when you expect. Create space for talking in different ways, such as going on a walk together or baking together – there may be less pressure in these circumstances than when sitting face-to-face. 
  • Look at the positives - As schools reopen, other things will too. It might be helpful to talk about things your child is looking forward to, like their favourite shop reopening or seeing friends in the park.
