Ensure young people have access to pastoral care and support, as well as specialist services, so that emotional, social and behavioural problems can be dealt with as soon as they occur.
Systematically measure and assess young people's social and emotional wellbeing. Use the outcomes as the basis for planning activities and evaluating their impact (informed by Ofsted guidance on social and emotional wellbeing).
Nurture and encourage young people's sense of self-worth and self-efficacy, reduce the threat of bullying and violence and promotes positive behaviours.
Create a safe and calm environment, where mental health problems are less likely by proactively promoting positive social and emotional wellbeing for staff and students.
