Resilience Leaders

Killisick Resilience Leaders


The Resilience Leaders have been in place since September 2018 with Empower Education.  The focus of their work has been looking at:

  • growing their self-awareness, self-esteem and mind-set
  • gaining an understanding of how and why thoughts and emotions happen
  • how they can manage thoughts and emotion to be able to navigate life more easily and become more resilient


They have created and 'Emotions Toolkit' using approaches that they have learnt and that they have found to be effective for themselves, as well as designing new tools together.


In March 2019, the first set of leaders launched their toolkit to the rest of the school, introducing it to their peers and supporting them to create individual 'managing your emotions' plan.


The Resilience Leaders are an integral part of the whole school well-being plan, and have also been part of the Young Minds Resilience Programme.
