“Those who focus on relationships are also building resilience. The best way of ensuring this happens for all children is within a whole- child, whole-school framework for wellbeing.”

THE WELLBEING AUDIT USING APPRECIATIVE INQUIRY
Appreciative Inquiry is a way of involving a whole community in the identification of the best of what they have and collectively designing plans for change. It is ideal for evaluating wellbeing in a school.
Appreciative Inquiry is founded in the positive psychology movement and is an antidote to the problem solving approach.
IEPS is currently developing and trialling a Wellbeing Audit which schools can use to identify their strengths and weaknesses in this area and devise a plan for development. Please contact us for further news.
