Wellbeing Support for Schools

We specialise in the promotion of wellbeing and resilience in pupils, staff and whole school communities.

How our Support Works

Our flexible menu of support empowers schools to develop and deliver their wellbeing provision for pupils, staff and the whole school community. We support schools to embed mental health and wellbeing in a way that fits their unique needs and priorities. Our highly trained and experienced consultants form collaborative relationships with our partner schools, supporting them to strategically apply evidence-based approaches that promote wellbeing and prevent mental health problems.

We specialise in Positive Education. Our approach is positive, proactive, accessible and non-clinical. Our support increases schools’ capacity and capability to build on existing areas of good practice. Our approach has been developed in line with best practice guidelines from the Department for Education and Department of Health, and is underpinned by an evidence base that combines positive psychology, organisational psychology, and coaching psychology.

There are many routes to wellbeing and having worked with over 140 schools we realise that schools' starting places and strategic development opportunities vary considerably.

We provide support in the following areas:

Effective Practice

Leading Whole School Mental Health

Our coaching sessions, strategy workshops and school culture evaluations support school leaders to embed sustainable cultures of mental health, wellbeing and resilience, and to evaluate their effectiveness.

Staff Training and Development

We specialise in training whole staff teams and specialist practitioners in a range of strategies and resources that increase capacity to support pupil mental health. Our staff development enables schools to embed wellbeing into the classroom, curriculum and ethos.

Staff Wellbeing Support

Our staff wellbeing workshops and coaching sessions support the development of staff wellbeing and resilience. We also empower school staff to champion and lead their own effective and sustainable, staff wellbeing initiatives.

Teaching Mental Wellbeing

Our workshops for pupils and teaching resources explicitly teach skills for mental wellbeing. We also support schools to develop their own taught mental wellbeing lessons.

Supporting Vulnerable Pupils

Our training enables schools to develop and provide targeted early prevention programmes for pupils at risk of developing mental health problems. We also provide training and resources that enable pupils to lead wellbeing support for peers in their school.

Working with Parents and Carers

We support schools to work with parents and carers to improve the wellbeing and resilience of pupils. Our practical workshops provide parents with strategies that they can use at home to support the approaches to mental health, wellbeing and resilience being learned at school.

“Since working with Worth-it staff are more aware of the impact of emotional wellbeing and we are more mindful when dealing with students, this has resulted in pupil improvements in behaviour and positive staff and student relationships.”

Sue Webster, Pastoral Manager, Ibstock Community College

“Worth-it are inspiring and creative leaders. I would recommend them 100% to develop approaches to school wellbeing.”
