Integral to CheckInSchools is a quick and simple reporting process that sends pupils' concerns directly to the inbox of the relevant people in your school. Safeguarding or wellbeing officers are better informed and ultimately in a better position to determine what happens next.
Ideal for the touchscreen generation. Children can find it especially difficult to express their feelings and open up to others. Many young people are more comfortable expressing themselves using messaging than they are face to face. This is why CheckInSchools presents pupils with a familiar "messaging" platform that encourages them to speak up and speak out.
"Checking-in" to CheckInSchools helps pupils on an individual level identify what they are feeling. By taking some time to reflect on themselves pupils can start to understand their feelings and better regulate their emotions. According to Sutton Trust helping pupils improve self-regulation is one of the most effective and efficient ways of supporting students.
Indicators of mental health problems such as persistent low mood or unhappiness can easily be analysed. Use CheckInSchools to monitor the daily or weekly changes in your pupils' lives. A pupil might start off feeling happy and move towards anxious. By tracking this movement you are able to identify those who are in need of support.
The "Checking-in" process is based on a cognitive behaviour therapy technique whereby pupils share their worries and concerns so that they can let them go. This is incredibly powerful! Pupils feel more connected and less isolated. They worry less, engage more with their learning and develop an emotional resilience that enables them to better manage challenges.
Determine your pupils emotional readiness to learn. Knowing that a pupil is experiencing negative emotions on any given day enables teachers to anticipate their behaviour, react appropriately and find solutions. CheckInSchools allows schools to immediately know how their pupils are doing before the school day begins. With this information teachers can ensure that their pupils' learning ability is not impaired.
