The National Childrens Bureau (NCB) have published a self-assessment and improvement tool for school leaders in order to share evidence from research and practice to improve student wellbeing.
“The National Children’s Bureau’s Partnership for Well Being and Mental Health in Schools has been developing an assessment and improvement tool for school leaders. This is an evidence informed self-assessment and improvement tool for school leaders to support them in implementing a whole school approach for addressing students emotional wellbeing and mental health needs. It is complemented by a set of resources to support in the application of the tool.”
It promotes a 4 stage approach:
- Stage one: Deciding to act and identifying what is in place already
- Stage two: Getting a shared understanding and commitment to change and development
- Stage three: Building relationships and developing practices
- Stage four: Implementation and evaluation
