This 2021 summer term timetable helps schools plan ahead for curriculum themes and occasions where mental health can be explored and celebrated for both staff and pupils.

It features dates, activity suggestions and resources for events including:

  • Stress Awareness Month
  • Mental Health Awareness Week

The calendar also highlights points in the summer term where levels of anxiety may be higher, including exam time or the transition to secondary school, university/college or the world of work.

We'll be producing a calendar for each term of the school year. To find out when the next one is produced, sign up to our newsletter.
