Healthy Schools: COVID-19

COVID-19 has caused unique challenges for children and young people. Here, you can find resources to share with parents to help them cope with lockdowns, keep children busy, set a schedule and talk about the virus in an age-appropriate way. 

These resources have been created by Haringey's Educational Psychology Service (EPS) and other partners.
