Building Resilience – Back to School Tips

We have loved being part of your journey back to school. Today we are posting the last of our ten tips. We hope you will still be able to benefit from them over the coming term. Developing resilience can help us cope with the ups and downs which may arise.  

Back to School Tip #10: Have a Goal – A new journey starts with a step…    


Your child: Talk to your child about what they would like to learn or get better at by the end of this term, such as a sports skill, a new hobby, being able to cook something, dress themselves, etc. 

You: Think about something positive you can start to do or keep doing when your child returns to school, e.g. start a new class, exercise, meet a friend, complete a home improvement project.

If you have a child who is starting or returning to school this term you can find lots of helpful tips to help get prepared in the Building Resilience – Back to School Tips booklet.

Building Resilience – Back to School Tips

We are so excited to welcome back our remaining children today and we hope you have a great day!

We are sure the past few weeks have been a very busy and perhaps stressful time for families. We hope the Back to School tips are giving you some ideas to support wellbeing. We’d love to hear the things that help to boost your wellbeing.      

Back to School Tip #9: Respect Yourself – Be proud of your child and yourself    


Your child: Help your child make a list of the things they have learnt and enjoyed over the last few months. e.g. learned to hula hoop, baking, mountain biking. Share and celebrate these with family and friends.  

You: Think about and share all the ways you and the family have adjusted to the challenges over the last few months. Acknowledge together the strengths you have shown. There may have been ups and downs but remind yourself of the things you managed to do, such as using video calls, cooking family meals, supporting your child with their learning or exploring your neighbourhood. 

Together: You may wish to put together a scrap book or time capsule to help remember this extraordinary time. It could include photographs of the things you did at home, news articles, letters, interviews from different family members, etc.

Building Resilience – Back to School Tips

For those of you returning to school today, we can’t wait to see you and we hope you have a great day!

We are going to be posting some more Back to School tips each day for the rest of the week. We’d love to hear which tip has been your favourite.    

Back to School Tip #8: Get Active – Keep going, or get started 


It’s proven that physical activity boosts our sense of well-being.  

Your Child: If your child started to be more active during lockdown, think about how this can be continued. If not, what small steps could you encourage? Be curious about what may interest them and plan how they could try something new.    

You: A lot of us were more active, individually as well as together as a family – playing games, going for cycle rides and walks together. We will have noticed the benefit; plan how you can keep these activities going.   

Together: As lockdown eases we can benefit from more exercise outdoors and reduce family screen time and online activity. Remember little rewards to yourself and family can help establish a good habit!

Building Resilience – Back to School Tips

We hope you and your child are feeling ready to return to school either tomorrow or Thursday. Some of our Back to School tips may give you some ideas and help you all focus on the positives.   

Back to School Tip #7: Make a Difference – Small things can make a difference 


Your Child: Discuss with your child what they did to make a difference to someone in your community or your environment over the past few months. These could be things such as displaying a rainbow, shopping for a grandparent or cutting the grass for a neighbour. 

Acknowledge the small things – for example notice your child when they help a sibling, put litter in the bin, help around the home.   

You: Talk about who or what made a difference to you or your family during lockdown.  This could be something that seems small, like someone calling when you needed cheering up. Consider how you made a difference and what else you’d like to do.  

Together: By each of us washing our hands, wearing a mask when necessary and keeping a distance we help protect others.

Building Resilience – Back to School Tips

Staff at Roseburn want to help our children make as smooth a transition as possible back into school and to feel safe and happy here with us. All week we will be sharing some more tips which will hopefully give some helpful ideas.  

Back to School Tip #6: Take a Moment – We all need some time out 

Your Child: Reflect on what you have noticed helps or may help your child to cope with new or difficult situations or emotions, such as listening to music, jumping on the trampoline, etc. It might be helpful to practice new coping strategies together and plan for how these can be used when things are tricky.  

You: Being a parent can be really tough! Doing things to look after our own wellbeing helps to manage stress, boost our confidence and makes us more able to cope with the ups and downs. Try to prioritise doing something that improves your wellbeing – it might help to set aside some time each day. You could chat with a friend, go for a walk, read a book, go fishing, etc.  

Together: If appropriate, share with your child a way you have managed a difficult situation.
