Eikon delivers a range of services in schools focused on prevention & early intervention and emotional wellbeing & mental health for young people.
Face to face services include:
To access this service a young person who attends the school (or their parent/carer) must talk with a teacher or the Youth Specialist.
Our whole school approaches include:
Webinars for schools
Eikon take a whole school approach to supporting schools, with this in mind we have launched parent webinars on topics such as:
Supporting Your Child’s Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health – Covering the factors affecting children and young people’s mental health with simple and practical strategies to support this.
Supporting Your Child with the Transition to Secondary School – Based on Smart Moves, Eikon’s transition programme, we explore how Boing Boing’s Resilience Framework can support children to gain independence as they transition to secondary school.
Details of our webinar ‘How to help your child manage exams‘ will circulated in the autumn term. If you would like to register your interest or receive a recording of our previous webinars please email the schools team
Look out for our new monthly Wellbeing Posters created by our Schools Partnership team, helping young people to find ways to reduce anxious thoughts and enjoy the moment. You can find the posters here.
We are working hard across the organisation to keep young people, staff, volunteers, visitors and facilities users as safe as possible. We are following all current government guidelines. We will continue to adapt our plans and deploy extra measures as additional public health guidance is received.
We are engaging with local and regional bodies and with partners to inform them of our organisational situation and ensure that everything we do complies with current advice and regulation.
There may well be further need to adjust some of our services as the situation develops. This will only be done after carefully considering the needs of everyone affected.
As an organisation we are committed to providing you the information you need to be able to make informed choices and where necessary changes to your usual activities in our building and services.
We have completed Covid-19 specific risk assessments and put in place appropriate actions to manage the risks identified. This is an ongoing priority for us and these risks assessments will be reviewed regularly to ensure that we are complying with government guidance to minimise transmission risk.
