In this article, we explore four vital indicators of potential mental wellbeing concerns in your classroom and how LessonUp can help:

  1. Anxiety: Discover ways LessonUp can assist your anxious students, such as providing a safe and anonymous environment, gradual exposure opportunities, and constructive feedback.
  2. Attachment: Learn how to support students with attachment issues by helping them express their feelings, offering praise and feedback, and using mind maps to boost self-esteem.
  3. Looked-after Children: Find out how LessonUp encourages looked-after children to express themselves, personalized content to recognize their individuality, and clear communication with visual reminders.
  4. Low Mood: Understand how LessonUp can help track student satisfaction, reward dedication, and monitor results to support students with an ongoing low mood.

By identifying and addressing these indicators, you can create a more supportive classroom environment prioritising the mental well-being of your students.

These 4 potential signals are inspired by a booklet on mental health and wellbeing in schools, written by the Anna Freud Foundation. For more information on each point, please read the entire booklet and make sure you consult your government’s advice concerning mental health & wellbeing in schools.

Thomas Courtley is a former faculty leader and teacher from South East England, with a true passion for human culture and society. For 10 years he worked within the UK educational system, in a variety of teaching roles and, over time, as head of different departments. He worked his way up the ladder with energy and dedication, seizing his chances to implement positive changes within the secondary schools he worked in. During this period of time, he worked in various roles, starting as a trainee and later taking on responsibilities as a literacy and numeracy coordinator, a history teacher, and a geography teacher. With time, he became head of humanities, geography, PSHE and RE. His deliberate choice led him to work in the outer South East London area, primarily in comprehensive schools with a substantial population of Pupil Premium Students. His personal background served as a powerful motivation to teach and connect with students who faced similar socio-economic challenges. Thomas believes that digital tools can support teachers in expressing themselves, engaging students, and promoting equality in the classroom.
