The hallmark of a safe and supportive school is whole-school wellbeing. This means that all members feel a sense of belonging, are valued, respected and free from discrimination and harassment.
Help promote wellbeing in all areas of students’ lives:
Help your secondary students build skills to stay physically and mentally strong and well. Confident and resilient students acknowledge their strengths and also know when and who to ask for help.
Bullying can take many forms in the school environment and can have lasting impacts if no action is taken. Find effective strategies, approaches and practical tools for preventing bullying and building a safe and positive learning climate.
Respect for diversity is related to a young person’s sense of belonging and connection to others. Find resources to help students develop respect and acceptance of individual differences among people and groups in their community and beyond.
Positive relationships are the key to students feeling safe, valued and accepted by all members of the school community. Find resources to help create and maintain a school culture that is respectful and inclusive and values the participation of all students.
Teenagers are faced with increasingly complex decisions as they move through their secondary years. Help your students develop the skills to make informed choices and feel positive about their decisions. Find resources to build these lifelong skills.
The online world has great benefits for learning but students need to learn how to keep safe from bullying or unwanted contact. Find resources to help build their digital literacy skills for online safety.
