It's Children's Mental Health Week
3rd - 7th February 2020
Time to Talk Day 2020 is taking place on Thursday 6th February

Mental health problems affect one in four of us, yet too many people are made to feel isolated, ashamed and worthless because of this. Time to Talk Day encourages everyone to be more open about mental health. 

We invite you to join us by helping your students to actively engage with the schools conversation pack.
This pack is full of tips, ideas and resources to help get your school talking. Some of the content can be used with students, some with staff and some for the whole school community. You can access it here.

If you have Wellbeing Ambassadors why not get them involved in planning how your school can be a part of this?

Our research shows that the delivery of the programme differs between schools and tutors. Best practice to create impact includes:
  • Keep reminding everyone of the overall purpose of the programme commit to delivering in an interesting and engaging way
  • Have great conversations – the programme is about enhancing communication, developing empathy and building strong relationship skills which all lead to greater resilience
  • Ask rather than tell – the goal is to get pupils to think about their own Smart Moves
  • Use it in all your interactions – if a pupil comes to you outside the session you can ask - ‘ Thinking about your Smart Moves what could you do? '
Smart Moves Year 10
Following the successful delivery of Smart Moves for Years 6 & 7 across more than 80% schools in Surrey we have been asked to develop Smart Moves for Year 10. 
Designed for all students across Year 10 and into Year 11, Smart Moves is a strength based, early intervention tool that educates and upskills both students and teachers on building resilience skills. Delivery is led by class teachers or tutors for this crucial school year.

SMART Schools

It is widely recognised that a child’s emotional health and wellbeing influences their cognitive development and learning as well as their physical and social health and their mental wellbeing in adulthood.  

Eikon’s SMART Schools programme supports schools to strategically develop whole school approaches to improving wellbeing by highlighting where things are working well and identifying focused areas for improvement and signposting to resources.

Level 1 is  an online assessment tool for SLT to review and reflect on the school’s current position with regards to whole school wellbeing.  

Level 2 focuses on one or two areas highlighted in the report produced during level 1.  Eikon will spend a day in school carrying out a deep-dive day, speaking to staff, pupils, parents and governors, to identify next steps and formulate an action plan to improve whole school wellbeing . 

The programme is currently funded by Surrey Educational Trust.

If you are interested to find out more, please email and someone from our team will be in touch.

Young Carers - Summer School
The University of Surrey is running a FREE summer school for young carers from school years 9 - 11. It is a great opportunity for them to explore a range of subjects and meet fellow students who share similar experiences.
