An emotionally healthy approach to GCSEs - a guide for teachers
This guide is part of a series about taking an emotionally healthy approach to GCSEs. This is the teachers guide, and the others are for pupils and parents and carers. The guides are packed with practical tips and ideas to support young people before, during and after exam time. Although written in reference to GCSEs, the content can be applied to any exam.
Please note these guides were last updated in 2019, so they do not refer to the Coronavirus pandemic but the advice is still sound and based on evidence.
Additionally, the following articles relate to the current situation:
Talking to children about online sexual harassment
A new guide for parents has been published by the Children's Commissioner on how to talk to children about online sexual harassment.
The guide includes tips from young people about how parents can open up earlier conversations about sexual harassment, nudes, sexualised bullying, photo editing, body image and peer pressure. Conversation starters are provided along with lists of organisations for further help and support.
The guide, which is in part built upon the experiences and voices of young people, provides adults with practical advice on how to navigate discussions with their own children.
