The Sandwell Well-being Charter Mark and Whole School Approach to Well-being 

A National Training Event for Educational Psychologists – 20 March 2020

The day will introduce you to the key elements of the Sandwell Whole School Approach to Well-being.  A key part of the day will be training on how to deliver the Well-being Charter Mark in your schools and Local Authorities.

Summary of the Day

  • Training on delivering The Sandwell Well-being Charter Mark:

This action research process supports schools to identify and develop good practice in the area of emotional well-being.  You will be trained in how to undertake the audit process and in how to support schools to co-construct a personalised action plan based on their data.  The Charter Mark is underpinned by Public Health research highlighting the range of factors that promote 
emotional well-being in schools (PHE, 2015). The Charter Mark reflects positive psychology and community psychology principles relating to mental health and well-being. 

  • An introduction to the ‘Healthy Mind, Happy Me’ curriculum:

You will be introduced to the new primary school curriculum; this has been developed to 
support schools to successfully promote the development of psychological skills that are linked to emotional well-being in children. 

  • The Sandwell Well-being Screening Tool: 

You will also be introduced to the well-being screening tool that we have developed as part of the whole-school approach.  This can be used to measure the well-being of individual children or groups of children. 

The conference will be held at:
