Health and wellbeing programs have a positive and significant impact on attitudes to learning, social relationships and student achievement. Effective schools take steps to support students’ wellbeing and physical needs, as well as fostering a sense of community and belonging for all.

Schools ensure that every student has a secure, positive and ongoing relationship with at least one member of staff.
