Learning communities may feel overwhelmed and saddened by the physical separation from teachers, students and friends during this time of distancing and remote learning. Changes to your usual routine as well as coping with the pandemic may see a rise in anxiety and depression. Jennie and Sally will share well being considerations for learning communities during remote learning and provide anxiety strategies to support the children and young people in our care.
