Dr Charlotte Bagnall is a Lecturer at the University of Manchester within Manchester’s Institute of Education. Charlotte holds a PhD in Psychology from Manchester Metropolitan University and an MSc in Psychology and BSc in English and Psychology from Keele University. Charlotte sits on the BPS Developmental Section committee, the BPS ECR committee and TCELT-INTR committee.
Charlotte is an applied social psychologist and her research is focused on supporting children’s emotional well-being and mental health within schools. She is a mixed-methods researcher, with a particular interest in intervention science and co-creation within education. Charlotte is particularly passionate about school transition and how we can improve children’s emotional well-being during this time
For her PhD Charlotte designed (see Bagnall, 2020) and evaluated (see Bagnall et al., 2021a) the first universal emotional-centred intervention to specifically focus on improving children’s emotional well-being over primary-secondary school transition. This intervention, which was called Talking about School Transition, was informed by focus group and case study research conducted in the UK and USA in mainstream and special schools (See Bagnall et al., 2019, Bagnall et al., 2021b, Bagnall et al., 2021c). Charlotte was invited to present this research at BERA’s Virtual Journal Club Meeting – Practitioner Research event.
