Resources: SWGfL – Safe Remote Learning
This site was created for young people, carers and professionals to pool together lots of helpful resources from across the internet that are available to help support your mental health and well-being. I hope that you find it helpful.
Every organisation supporting children and young people with their mental wellbeing acknowledges the additional strain on them at this time. MindSafe fills the gap between advice and action. Further details available at www.mind-safe.com

Resources: Creativity and Confidence at Home For Children
I’m happy to be able to send you the second video in the “Creativity and Confidence At Home” series. In this new collection of messages – introduced by Cbeebies’ Rebecca Keatley, celebrities discuss their inspirations, give advice and set challenges to complete at home.
Perhaps your pupils could complete Anton Du Beke’s dance challenge and send him 15 seconds of original choreography set to their favourite music? Or maybe they can get active around the house by taking part in Olympic champion, Amy Williams’ fitness challenge?
Children will also hear from a cohort of celebrated professionals including celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal on introducing taste and explorer Levison Wood on what inspired him to travel the World.
All this is topped off by celebrities including; international cricketer Ryan Sidebottom, Britain’s Got Talent Winner Jai McDowall and ITV’s The Dales Amanda Owen - all giving ideas and perspectives on how to use all this extra time at home: https://vimeo.com/409475949
