The Somerset Wellbeing Framework uses an eight principle approach to promote wellbeing in schools. The principles underpin an effective whole-school approach and provide the scaffolding needed to cover every aspect of school life. The framework includes a Wellbeing Audit Tool and an online scrapbooks where schools can capture evidence and celebrate success against evidence-based Pillars of Wellbeing.
As part of the Somerset Wellbeing Framework Public Health are providing a range of training and resources to help schools to promote and cultivate a culture of wellbeing alongside more targeted support for those young people that need more.
These include the resources on the Public Health website: www.cypsomersethealth.org
