Abstract

Supporting wellbeing within education settings is vital. The Well Schools whole school approach to supporting teacher and pupil wellbeing provides a framework that supports planning and engagement where each school has the space to advocate for a bespoke and tailored approach that meets the needs of their school community. We report on a secondary school, as a case study example, that adopted Well Schools in 2020 and set out how valuing a whole school culture, providing good leadership and embedding wellbeing support into the vision and ethos of the school can aid the successful implementation of Well Schools that fuel transformative change. This article offers reflections on approaches for achieving a whole school approach to wellbeing, provide examples of what works well and explores how a culture of wellbeing can provide a climate for staff, pupils and their communities to thrive.
