Day 2 @ 11:40

Moving beyond wellbeing programs to whole-school wellbeing

Join us as we explore learnings and actions from the MACS Student Engagement Unit to support a whole of school approach to embedding wellbeing, enabling students to flourish and enrich the world. Wellbeing needs across schools are increasingly complex, with schools supporting and responding to these needs in a variety of ways. A systems approach to wellbeing is called for which recognises the unique environment of schools, highlighting the importance of partnerships with the school community, Parish, parents, staff, children, and young people.

This session will include:

  • What we have learnt from working in partnership with our schools
  • How we encourage schools to adopt a whole of school approach to wellbeing
  • Practice, pedagogy, informed decision - making using multiple measures of data and research.
  • Student centred with relationships at the heart.
