Wellbeing in NSW public schools
The NSW Department of Education and Communities (DEC) is committed to creating quality learning opportunities for children and young people. This includes strengthening their physical, social, emotional and spiritual development. Parents entrust their children and young people to principals, teachers and school staff with confidence that schools will deliver on this agenda.
Wellbeing Framework for Schools
The Wellbeing Framework equips schools and their communities to support students at each stage of their development and to do this through quality teaching, learning and engagement.
Schools will achieve this through planning and decision-making at the local level to meet the needs of their students. This work is underpinned by high standards, clear expectations and counselling and wellbeing resources.
