Wellbeing in the Primary Classroom is an essential guide to supporting emotional and mental wellbeing in the primary classroom. It is packed full of tried-and-tested activities and techniques and has a foreword by Sir Anthony Seldon.
“Children's mental wellbeing is so vitally important. Happier children learn more, cope better and are much more likely to make the most of their potential. Adrian Bethune is an inspiration and this book should be required reading for everyone involved in teaching young children. It's a perfect blend of scientific research, real-world experience and practical ideas that really make a difference.
Dr Mark Williamson,
Director of Action for Happiness

"Adrian’s well-structured book shows teachers how to teach a range of concepts and skills and integrate them into the classroom and school culture. It’s one of the first books of its kind that makes it easy for teachers to understand why this matters and what they can do in a practical sense in their classrooms."
