A school wellbeing audit is a comprehensive assessment of the support and resources available within a school to promote the mental health and wellbeing of pupils, staff and the wider school community. It involves reviewing and evaluating the policies, procedures and services that are in place to support mental health and wellbeing and identifying areas for improvement.

It provides a comprehensive evaluation of the school’s educational practices, identifies areas for improvement, and establishes a clear roadmap for continuous improvement. Gather the views from all stakeholders, including staff, pupils, parents, carers and governors, as well as evaluate your school leadership and management, ethos and environment, curriculum, teaching and learning, staff development, interventions and targeted support.
