Evidence shows that children learn best when parents and schools come together to support the child in their learning.
The most effective approach is when what is learned at school crosses over to the home environment, when this happens the teacher, child and parent learn and grow together and knowledge and behaviour is embedded in their everyday life.
Mental health has become a buzzword with a lot of stigma attached to it. But how can you best support your child in their mental wellbeing?
We want to help you continue the conversation at home, providing you with the language and know-how to turn these “difficult” conversations into a positive learning experience for the whole family.
iSpace member schools have access to bespoke workshops for parents to enable them to build on what their child is learning in school at home.
Our range of iSpace Wellbeing learning tools and books are also designed to help parents and children at home.
The iSpace Toolkit can be used by the whole family to continue what your child is learning at school and bring it into the home.
By creating a common language that all the family can use to talk about mental wellbeing, the iSpace Toolkit provides a go to guide, conversation map and handy card deck designed to make mental wellbeing part of the fabric of everyday life.
