Catching Up after Covid-19
In a recent government report into the impacts of COVID-19 school closures on children and young people (CYP) by academics at UCL/Great Ormond St Hospital
27 studies concerning mental health identified considerable impacts across emotional, behavioural and restlessness/inattention problems;
18-60% of CYP scored above risk thresholds for distress, particularly anxiety and depressive symptoms.
As you know, a key concern at school is children’s inability to self-regulate and be ‘ready to learn’, their sensory, attachment & emotional needs often lead to negative behaviour taking them out of the classroom.
This in turn disrupts teaching and removes support staff from the classroom and leads to further problems.
We can address this with our music-based learning and sensory-aware teaching resources for whole classes: our School Membership.
