Resources to explain the Ukraine Crisis
Niall Fallon, Senior Vice Principal:

I wanted to share some more useful guidance we have been given for students, staff and families. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is distressing and concerning and whilst your child may not be watching the news they will still hear about these events in other ways and this may be making them feel unsettled. Young people now grow up in a world of social media and therefore being exposed to and having access to news on a global scale is so much easier. We have given staff guidance on how to talk to pupils about the events in an age-appropriate and sensitive way. You can find some of this guidance here:
- DfE blog: Help for teachers and families to talk to pupils about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and how to help them avoid misinformation. – The Education Hub (blog.gov.uk) to help them avoid misinformation
- Children’s Commissioner blog: We should not hide from children what is happening in Ukraine | Children’s Commissioner for England (childrenscommissioner.gov.uk)
- Childline content: Worrying about Russia and Ukraine | Childline
