Why have you created this event for teachers and school leaders?
We believe in the core importance of student and teacher wellbeing.
The Department of Education launched the revised Wellbeing Policy Statement and Framework for Practice in October, 2019.
To implement this policy every school and centre for education is required by 2023, to use the School Self-Evaluation (SSE) process to initiate a wellbeing promotion review and development cycle.
We want to support teachers and schools in placing wellbeing at the heart of schools with practical ideas and tangible steps.
What is included?
“Placing Wellbeing at the Heart of Schools” is a specially designed online event for teachers and school leaders.
This event aspires to inspire, motivate and share valuable insights to those want to implement wellbeing practices into their lives and their students lives.
Join us for a morning of positivity and support in a virtual space full of like-minded teachers who are cheering each other on!
The day includes the following events:
Fiona will start our day by outlining what well-being is, why it is so important, and how we can start to place it at the heart of school life. She will share a number of practical suggestions for everyday classroom well-being practices, drawn from the field of Positive Psychology and her own personal experience as a teacher.

Pupils, teachers, caretakers, secretaries, parents & members of the local community encompass the ‘whole school’ and Robbie will be highlighting the importance of ensuring that ALL of the partners within a school community are included with regard to any well-being policies and initiatives.
Robbie will concentrate the practical elements of well-being by sharing what has been effective for him within his setting and how they can be applied to any school setting.
