In this webinar, Dr Maddi Popoola and Dr Sarah Sivers presented the findings of their latest research paper on educational psychology.

Titled "School Is Too Much Pressure", they explored feedback from over 600 pupils who were asked questions on their experiences at school and its effect on their mental wellbeing. This is a follow-up to research completed as children transitioned back into school after the pandemic, in order to see how the upheaval had affected their learning.
