Important Professional Development for All Educators

Understand the Concept of Wellbeing within a Whole School Community

As social beings, our wellbeing stretches far beyond the skin we are in...and into the context around us.

Create a Sense of Belonging for ALL Young People

The experience of belonging comes when we are connected to others in a healthy, authentic and meaningful way.

Discover the Importance of Context

The way we connect to our social context is vital to our experience of that context. The ability of the context to support our needs is, in turn, vital for our wellbeing.

Support Engagement in Learning in EVERY child

Engagement and intrinsic motivation grow when are core needs are met and we believe in our ability to become our personal best.

Delve into the Pros and Cons of Wellbeing Education in 2020

The explicit teaching of ideas and strategies helps us learn how to connect to our context... but if we are to experience contextual wellbeing, we also need to ensure the context we are connecting to is healthy in itself.

Create Equitable Policy and Practice across the WHOLE school

Policy and practice needs to support the development of a varied and flexible context that acknowledges the unique contribution of every member of that context
