Mental health and wellbeing provision in schools

The Department for Education (DFE) has published a report summarising findings from a research project looking at the information schools in England provide to support their pupils’ wellbeing and mental health. Findings from a study involving 45 secondary schools, 45 primary schools and 10 special schools include: a variety of approaches, interventions, and support were identified in schools’ policies that can contribute towards the promotion of mental health and wellbeing; schools would benefit from further awareness, advice and resources to enable stand-alone interventions to be further embedded within whole-school strategies that promote the mental health and wellbeing of all pupils.
