West Partnership – Interesting practice: Wellbeing

What is this?

An overview of exemplars of interesting practice relating to wellbeing from across the West Partnership.

Who is this for?

This exemplar is for senior leaders, practitioners from across all sectors who have an interest in wellbeing within the West Partnership.

The content below includes exemplars of interesting practice from across West Partnership Early Years, primary and secondary sectors relating to wellbeing.

These have been categorised according to recent Scottish Government guidance around whole school approaches for wellbeing and link to the categories for the West Partnership toolkit for reviewing existing practice in schools and establishments.

The content will allow teachers and practitioners to provide inspiration and make connections around interesting practice currently emerging across the West Partnership (Glasgow City Region Education Improvement Collaborative) in the area of wellbeing.

Improvement questions

  • Through the learning experiences and opportunities I create, how am I helping young people develop skills which prepare them for their future wellbeing?
  • What could I do more of, less of, or differently?
  • How can partnership working with other practitioners, parents and the wider community be developed to build and maintain the resilience of our children and young people?
  • What opportunities are there for co-designing and implementing learning experiences about resilience and wellbeing?
