Pupils Wellbeing In Schools

Pupil wellbeing and staff wellbeing is paramount in all UK schools, all other educational setting(s), and should be a key priority for all schools.

There are many different aspects to pupil wellbeing, which can include physical, emotional, social and mental health.

It is important that schools provide a safe and supportive environment for all pupils, where they feel happy and secure.

Mental And Physical Health

Offering young people within a school community mental health and wellbeing support is important for schools to achieve.

Whether it is through remote learning, external resources or on a whole school level, each young person should be able to recognise, understand and measure wellbeing in themselves and flag to school staff, support staff or school leaders, when other pupils’ mental health deteriorates.

It is equally important that schools take the time to get to know their pupils too and identify any areas where they may need additional support.

  • Emotional wellbeing
  • Social and emotional skills
  • Mental wellbeing
  • Academic achievement
  • Positive relationships

…. are all important for supporting pupil wellbeing. However, it is also important for schools to focus on the individual needs of each pupil, as each child is unique and will have different experiences, backgrounds and views on wellbeing.

Mental Health & School Community

There are a number of things that schools can do to promote pupil wellbeing. For example:

  • Provide support and guidance on how to manage stress or anxiety
  • Offer counselling services
  • Promote healthy eating and exercise habits
  • Offer advice on managing time effectively

…..but how do schools know which area(s) to concentrate on first or at all?
