Managing Anxiety 28-Day Course – Day 1 Is Live Today

MANAGING ANXIETY 28-DAY COURSE – Day 1 is live today at or listen here

Anxiety is a big subject, with a lot of factors involved.  This Zumos 28-day programme will enable you to:

  • Learn about how anxiety is a normal emotion, with several different types;
  • Appreciate how anxiety often has a positive purpose;
  • Recognise the symptoms of your own particular experience of anxiety;
  • Explore a wide range of practical ways of working with your own anxiety so you can find what suits you best;
  • Gain more understanding of what’s going on and what you can do about it, so you feel more in control;
  • Learn how to improve your own wellbeing so you can be calmer and happier.

Each day’s message takes around three minutes to listen to.  It will give you ideas to think about and practical things to do, so you can experiment to find what works best for you.  At the end of each week there’s a recap so you can celebrate your progress, and at the end of the four weeks you’ll be able to see how far you’ve come – and also see how you can continue your progress into the future

To help support you during COVID-19, Rockpool have created a series of factsheets, designed to offer some support and strategies, whatever your situation, and are based on what Rockpool know about people’s responses to traumatic events and what can help.

Here are some useful documents.

Schools making NHS face shields, How Can you help?

Schools making NHS face shields

Why we need your help

The Design & Technology teachers at Tapton School Academy Trust have begun to make face shields for NHS doctors and nurses.  Bradfield and Chaucer DT teams aim to make over 1000 shields next week 

How can you help?

In order to be able to manufacture as much as possible we need your money to purchase the materials; these are 0.5mm polypropylene sheet and 0.1mm (1 micron) clear acetate, polycarbonate or PVC.

You can donate via this page: schoolssupportingnhs

Or If you are a plastic supplier and are willing to donate these materials then please get in touch via

Your money will be used to help our front line workers when they need it most during this difficult time. Thank you in advance.

Why we are doing this?

To manufacture face shields for the NHS and other front line workers during the Covid-19 outbreak.

You’ve probably seen the news stories of front line NHS workers having to survive on minimal personal protective equipment (PPE) during the Covid-19 virus outbreak.  It has been reported that up to 25% of our front line workforce is currently self isolating, having been exposed to the virus and showing symptoms. There is a shortage of PPE, not just in the front line hospitals, but also in doctors surgeries and care homes.  Design and Technology departments across the country are starting to manufacture face shields to protect workers from the infection and we would like to join them. The face shield is one of the most effective barriers for staff to use when in contact with patients.

How can we do this?

We have 6 laser cutters at our disposal and would like to manufacture as many shields as we can over the coming weeks, just as virus infection numbers reach a peak.  We have a simple but effective design that can be manufactured from two materials and assembled and delivered quickly to the key workers of Sheffield and South Yorkshire.
