The course is an informative and reflective session to review how our schools can support wellbeing. It incorporates materials from ‘Valuing All God’s Children’ (Church of England, 2018) and The Children’s Society.

- Consider policy and practice that might be implemented to secure good mental health and wellbeing

By the end of the course participants will have:
- Explored audit tools to support evaluating wellbeing
