Comments from F4L training participants 2020/21:

“It’s an inspiring resource. It fits with a lot of the current thinking in schools to support pupils to emotionally regulate. It reminds colleagues that one size, strategy or response, doesn’t fit all.”

“I now feel more confident to deliver a mental health session to Key Stage 1 children.”

“I feel fully equipped to use the Facts4Life resource at school in a strategic way – (cascading training to staff members) with pupils and families/parents, to enhance the understanding of and managing of mental health.”

This is Fin & Bear
