The Wellbeing in Schools Movement was setup following the announcement to reopen schools during the Covid-19 lock down. It was setup to promote mental health and wellbeing in schools using trauma-informed and relational approaches. Science tells us that to improve outcomes for children we need to reduce stress, strengthen relationships, and improve core life skills (Center on the Developing Child, Harvard University). We also know that to support the mental health and wellbeing of others, we must first look after our own mental health and wellbeing.

The Wellbeing in Schools Movement upholds the following beliefs:

  1. Behaviour is communication and we should seek to understand it.

  2. Connection should always be sought before correction.

  3. Every child has the right to be educated in their local community school.

  4. Everyone in the school community should feel safe and be free of toxic stress.

  5. Labels are for clothes not for people.

  6. Research shows that excluding children from school may lead to long-term psychological distress and therefore no child should be excluded from school.
