A whole-school approach to children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing has been a recent key focus for the Welsh government.
The Curriculum for Wales, coming in 2022, features Health and Wellbeing as one of the key areas of learning, and wellbeing is woven through the other curriculum areas.
The government is developing statutory guidance for schools on a whole-school approach to mental health, and recently doubled the amount of funding available to local authorities to help them implement a whole-school approach.
This section of the site is designed to help you implement a whole-school approach to mental health and wellbeing in your school. Find out more about the challenges facing schools in Wales, the support available and how you can make a difference in your school.
