How can resources help pupils develop resilience and readjust to the ‘new normal’?
The British Red Cross has a whole host of new resources to provide support to teachers, children, young people and parents through the coronavirus crisis.
As children return to school, Red Cross now want to help with the recovery back to the classroom. Beyond their incredible international charity work, not many teachers will know that they also deliver brilliant and accessible resources for both primary and secondary school teachers.
They have also published these new resilience resources which are differentiated for primary and secondary pupils, and have been designed to support children’s wellbeing and support their reintroduction back into the school environment. The resources are usable at home and in the classroom, making them ideal for both in-school and remote learning.
Resilience resources to help children:
- Prepare for the return to school
- Cope with any changes and challenges (use the back to better journal to keep track and reflect on your journey)
- Reflect on their learning and how it can build their resilience during this time.
- Continue simple acts of kindness.

Are you set to teach First Aid?
The range of resilient resources is not all the Red Cross have to offer students and teachers.
Their brand new site dedicated to First Aid resources encourages First Aid champions for 5-18-year-olds. By keeping things simple, the site helps you conﬁdently deliver lessons in line with the new RSE and health curriculum. The interactive site includes engaging videos from real-life characters, PowerPoints and quizzes.
Schools will need to be providing a broad and balanced curriculum that supports pupils’ mental health more than ever.
