The Welsh Government has published a new framework on a whole-school approach to emotional and mental well-being

The Welsh Government has published a new Framework aimed at the needs of school-age learners and the workforce supporting their learning and well-being needs.  

The framework is intended to support schools, including pupil referral units (PRUs) and education settings in reviewing their own well-being landscape and in developing plans to address their weaknesses and build on their strengths.

It recognises that the school alone cannot meet all the needs of a complex population of children and young people, and sets out the role of regional bodies, the NHS and others such as the third sector, in supporting the school.

It is meant to support and complement the new national curriculum for Wales and in particular the Health and Well-being Area of Learning and Experience.

Schools and local authorities are required to have regard to this framework when developing action plans, strategies and other policies that impact on the well-being of learners, staff and others working within the school environment.

In addition, local authorities should have regard to this framework when organising or delivering educated other than at school (EOTAS) provision.
