1. Sexting: get your facts straight

Sharing images online is a natural part of most children and young people’s lives, but sexting has legal consequences. Understand how the law applies, and how you can get the message across.

2. Managing mobile phone use in boarding schools

How much do we know about the impact of screen time on pupil wellbeing? Helen O’Connor explores the evidence and offers ways to manage phone use and improve mental and physical health.

3. Identifying peer-on-peer abuse: examples for staff

All staff have a role to play in responding to allegations of peer-on-peer abuse. Ann Marie Christian shares a few examples for you to discuss with colleagues.

4. Understanding the online disinhibition effect

Acting anonymously on social media can lead to impulsivity and a lack of restraint. Alan Mackenzie explains how you can encourage students to understand and reflect on their online behaviour.

5. Anxiety in young people: strategy booklet

Use this strategy booklet, created in partnership with Mental Health First Aid England, to ensure all staff are aware of how to identify anxiety, understand what it is, and can support pupils.

6. Managing stress and anxiety: helpful coping strategies

Use these helpful coping strategies with the resource above. This assembly plan is a good way to get pupils thinking about common symptoms and effective strategies to approach stress and anxiety.
