For a lot of children returning to school in September, it will be the first time since March that they have seen a classroom and interacted with so many people.

This is why wellbeing resources will play such a crucial role in September. It will be of utmost importance to check in with children and ensure they are happy both mentally and physically, and managing any anxieties they may have.
