Workforce benefits

Staff trained in the ROAR response will be able to identify the main signs and symptoms of a child experiencing mental distress and will understand things that they can do in school to support that child. They will also have access to a range of useful tools to monitor children’s mental health and offer self-care strategies.

The ROAR Themometer

Schools will become accustomed to using the ROAR thermometer (used to measure single units of distress) and the ROAR rainbow (used to to gauge a child’s level of mental wellbeing).

Access to all of the ROAR resources

Once trained in ROAR, staff will have access to a selection of printable resources and lesson plans for use across the school. They will also be invited to networking events with other ROAR trained staff from across the city to share resources, have updated/additional training, and receive support from peers.
