Back to school: using psychological perspectives to support re-engagement and recovery

28 May 2020

As governments, local authorities and school leaders look to re-open schools as part of the recovery from Covid-19, it is important to recognise the multiple roles that schools play in the life of a child, family and community.

 This guidance complements the UK and national government advice on the return to school for pupils by offering a psychological perspective on the process of re-engaging children and young people with school.

This briefing considers the challenges at government, community, school, family and child levels and offers recommendations for action to prepare and support the return to school.
