DfE Report: Mental health and wellbeing provision in schools

Written by George Matthews


Recently the DfE published a research project on the information schools provide to support their pupils’ wellbeing and mental health. The report uses a sample to assess activities and approaches adopted in different schools to help schools promote pupil wellbeing.
