Forest Oak School in Solihull have developed SMILE, and ethos based approach to prompting positive Mental Health and emotional well being in children and young people. It is built on the NHS 5 ways to well being.

The approach is currently nearing the completion of a two year research evaluation with 10 other schools  being led by Professor Barry Carpenter (Oxford Brookes University), Jo Egerton (Schools Research Consultant) in conjunction with Isabel Gerrard, (Well Being Lead, Forest Oak School), and Amanda Mordey, (Headteacher)

In the current climate we need to be mindful of the support our CYP will need as the gradually return to school . This approach is the perfect example of the Recovery Curriculum in action, and will be the subject of a future podcast with Amanda Mordey, OBE, Executive Headteacher , Forest Oak and Merstone School, Solihull, which will be posted on www.recoverycurriculum.org
