The pupil page enables educators to quickly identify the emotional status of every child at a glance. Pupils’ feelings are highlighted in red so that educators can quickly establish who is emotionally ready to learn and who is not. School practitioners can then match their approach to the individual needs of each child.
Based on a cognitive behavioural therapy technique CheckinSchools contains worries for pupils, so that they can let them go. Pupils feel less isolated, worry less and engage more in learning activities. The old adage "a problem shared is a problem halved", really does stand true.
Simply hover the curser over a pupil’s name and their comment will appear, giving educators an insight into the root of the issues affecting their students. Teachers are better acquainted with their pupils concerns, improving their ability to find solutions and address issues before they grow into more serious wellbeing issues.
If a pupil comment causes concern, simply add your own supporting comment and send both directly to the inbox of the designated contacts within your school. Wellbeing officers or child protection officers are better informed and ultimately, in a better position to decide what needs to happen next.
Many of our feelings are temporary; everyone feels down from time to time. However, persistent negative emotions can be an indicator of more serious, underlying problems. Tracking pupils’ happiness gives schools the ability to identify and tackle potential issues before they reach crisis point.
Identify and gain a greater understanding of the 6 core emotions experienced by pupils. The ability to drill down to the predominant core emotion, places the spotlight on the emotion that needs addressing.
Develop your pupils’ ability to name emotions and help them to become more emotionally literate. The simple act of naming an emotion brings awareness to our experiences and decreases the emotion’s power to control us. If pupils can name their emotions then they can begin to understand what motivates their actions.
