Teaching about conflict and war: Support for educators

To support the education system during times of conflict and war Education Scotland has developed a resource for educators to help support children and young people with their health and wellbeing.

This has a list of links and resources on:

  • Background information on conflict and war
  • Understanding the news
  • Resilience and wellbeing

Help for teachers and families to talk to pupils about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and how to help them avoid misinformation – a resource from the Department of Education. ‘We know that schools are well placed to talk to pupils about the images they are seeing and help them navigate the concepts and issues this brings up but we’re also aware that it raises issues some schools and teachers may never have encountered before.


Dr. Tina Rae has created the following ‘refugee support plan’ and ‘talking about war plan’ which provide practical ways schools can support their refugee children.  Click on the pictures to access the resources.
