  • Play:

It’s Children’s Mental Health Week. In the latest episode of Edgecast, we talk to Chris Wright, Head of Health and Well-being at the Youth Sport Trust, to get some answers on how sport can bolster robust mental health, well-being and resilience in young people. We also visit Southfield School in Kettering, which runs one of the Trust’s schemes, and speak to Assistant Head Teacher Janet Goodliffe and Health and Well-being Champion Dr Eleanor Hartley to discover how their pupils have benefitted from the use of sport in this way. The news hones in on a number of stories (such as pay issues, and A level politics and feminism), and we provide all the details on the vital and current NAHT courses you can attend.
