Achieving School Excellence in Wellbeing and Inclusion
This quality-assured tool assists school leaders with their school planning by drawing explicit links between key documents including the School Excellence Framework, the NSW Wellbeing Framework for Schools, the Disability Standards for Education 2005, the Inclusive Education Statement and Policy for students with disability.
The Achieving School Excellence in Wellbeing and Inclusion tool supports schools' understanding that wellbeing and inclusion initiatives and programs can be used as evidence of excellence across the School Excellence Framework.
It includes extensive sources of evidence/data of what excellence looks like in practice as well as practical ideas about what schools can use as evidence of excellence in wellbeing and inclusion.
Effective evidence-based wellbeing and inclusion programs enhance students' learning and help build inclusive school cultures. This tool shows how all programs can be inclusive and how schools can gather data to evaluate and evidence these programs.
The tool will complement schools’ implementation of the School Excellence Policy through strategic planning and ongoing self-assessment.
