What To Look Out For In Your Pupils
You may not be able to change the issues in a child's life, but acknowledging why they might be feeling a certain way and finding ways to show you care is a good start for children who are struggling.
This resource was created to help you spot distressing signs in a child's behaviour, and which factors in their life might be causing them. This can be especially important in the build up to the Christmas break which can be a difficult time for some children.
There are many factors that can affect children and young people's lives including bereavement, family issues and poverty, and some of these can become more apparent or challenging during the festive period.
We can feel unable to change the issues in a child's life, but being able to acknowledge certain feelings and behaviours in your pupils can show you care, and help you support them if they're struggling.
