This article by We Are Teachers offers teachers some guidance on how to welcome a child back to school after cancer treatment.

Children undergoing cancer treatment often miss significant amounts of class, and returning back to school can be a daunting experience. Teachers have an important role to play in ensuring the child has a smooth transition back into the classroom environment.

This article covers some tips for teachers to help:

  • Roll out – or roll up – the red carpet
  • Personalise the learning
  • Include the student in ALL class activities
  • Facilitate friendships
  • Talk to the child about everyday things
