Supporting you to overcome barriers to learning
The Ways to Wellbeing award has been designed to support schools to improve wellbeing. It will support schools to prepare for and deliver the statutory implementation of Relationships (and Sex) Education and Health Education from September 2020 and the proposed changes to the Ofsted framework.
Based on our extensive experience of delivering award programmes Ways to Wellbeing provides a robust approach to auditing current practice and making improvements in your school. Throughout the programme you will be able to access expert guidance from our experienced consultants.
The process begins with the Health Check, a comprehensive audit of current provision. The audit will be sent to you for initial completion. Once submitted our expert consultant will phone you to review the document to identify good practice and provide guidance to address gaps. The completed audit document will provide up to date and valuable evidence including for Ofsted. Once the Health Check is approved you will receive a certificate and logo.
The next step is to identify 1 of 6 themes for your school to work on. The themes are: Action Against Bullying, Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing, Relationships (and Sex) Education, PSHE education, Citizenship and Healthy Lifestyles. For your chosen theme you will receive a comprehensive toolkit containing a theme audit, survey questions, action plan template, policy checklist and other guidance. Using these tools, you will be able to assess your school's provision and gaps in the chosen area and write an action plan to implement over the next 12 months. Email support from our consultants will be available.
Once the action plan has been implemented you will be able to apply for accreditation. This will be an electronic submission of your final plan with evidence of progress. Our expert panel will assess your submission and once approved your school will be awarded the Ways to Wellbeing Award logo and certificate.
