Promoting mental health and wellbeing in schools

03 June 2019

This briefing sets out how Ofsted can develop its proposed inspection framework and approach to assessment to recognise schools that deliver quality mental health and wellbeing support.

Drawing on evidence from psychologists who work with children, young people, families, schools and teachers, this briefing outlines how Ofsted inspections could better incorporate a holistic understanding of children’s mental health in context.

It explains how to use that understanding to better assess and recognise good practice in schools that support the mental health and wellbeing of students and staff.
