Wellbeing Award for Schools

16th March 2022
The school is looking to achieve the Wellbeing Award for Schools (WAS) and has shared a link with parents/carers asking them to complete a short questionnaire, to let us know what they think about how well we support mental health here at Liscard Primary School.

This award focuses on changing the long-term culture of the whole school. Using an evidence-based framework to drive change, it will help us deliver staff and pupil wellbeing, review our staff training, and revise our policies. This award will ensure that mental health and wellbeing sit at the heart of our school life.
 
The WAS has eight objectives which focus on areas of evaluation, development and celebration of the work of schools in promoting and protecting emotional wellbeing and positive mental health. Each of these areas is further broken down into Key Performance Indicators (KPIs):

Objective 1: The school is committed to promoting and protecting positive emotional wellbeing and mental health by achieving the Wellbeing Award for Schools.

Objective 2: The school has a clear vision and strategy for promoting and protecting emotional wellbeing and mental health, which is communicated to all involved with the school.

Objective 3: The school has a positive culture which regards emotional wellbeing and mental health as the responsibility of all.

Objective 4: The school actively promotes staff emotional wellbeing and mental health.

Objective 5: The school prioritises professional learning and staff development on emotional wellbeing and mental health.

Objective 6: The school understands the different types of emotional and mental health needs across the whole-school community and has systems in place to respond appropriately.

Objective 7: The school actively seeks the ongoing participation of the whole-school community in its approach to emotional wellbeing and mental health.
