Children’s mental health charity launches free new resources for teachers


A host of child safeguarding experts will unite for a second time this autumn on the 10th November at a safeguarding seminar designed for education professionals. The event, hosted by online safety software provider Impero Software, will see speakers from the UK Safer Internet Centre, Internet Watch Foundation, a Police Cyber Specialist Unit, Victvs, and E-Safety Adviser (Alan Mackenzie) deliver a series of presentations and workshops. 

A survey into the standard of UK secondary school science labs has revealed that a shocking 49.5% of teaching professionals are not confident about pupil safety in science lessons.

The study conducted by leading education interior specialist, Innova Design Solutions, also revealed that a damning 63% of respondents view science labs as low tech, with 11% saying their facilities are very low tech.



Karen Baynes, Director of Barracudas Activity Day Camps, looks at activity day camps and how they can encourage and inspire the next generation of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) professionals.


YoungMinds, The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust and The Royal College of Psychiatrists have launched No Harm Done - a series of three short films about self-harm based on the experiences of teachers and other professionals, young people and parents.

The films provide hope and give practical support to those affected by self-harm, and counteract the negative and frightening messages that are widely available online.
