Christchurch Learning Federation
Christchurch Learning Federation were awarded funding for 2016 to support the emotional health & wellbeing of children & young people in Christchurch. To date, pastoral care workers from all Christchurch schools have taken part in a variety of training, on topics such as eating disorders and attachment. Funding has also enabled 14 workers across 11 Christchurch schools to be trained to run ‘Positive Parenting’ courses in schools. Schools will be offered further free training to support their pupils’ wellbeing throughout 2016, and are working together to ensure all have a culture which promotes positive emotional and mental health.
