Our schools-based resilience research projects have lead to the creation of various resources which adapt the Resilience Framework for use in schools and helps schools make resilient moves across the whole school community. Many of these schools resources make up our Academic Resilience Approach – free, downloadable, practical resources to help everyone in the school community step up and support pupils’ academic resilience. Anyone can access these resources for free, but please properly reference Boinboing in anything that you draw on in your own work.
