Engaging external wellbeing providers - checklist

The Engaging external wellbeing providers and programs decision tool is a good starting point when determining whether to use an external provider or program to support students' wellbeing.

The checklist supports staff when considering what programs are best for the students and school, while maintaining the values of NSW public schools.

Schools play a key role in supporting children and young people's wellbeing, and the department acknowledges the potential value of partnerships with non-departmental organisations in supporting students' wellbeing.

The Engaging external wellbeing providers and programs decision tool - checklist is an interactive PDF that covers a number of factors to consider under the following headings:

  • Links to school planning
  • Evidence base
  • Implementation
  • Community and staff.

It also includes a list of essential requirements under Compliance.

On completion of the checklist, you will have sound evidence to support your decision to proced with the delivery of the wellbeing program by the extenral provider.

The checklist can be downloaded, completed and attached to the risk management proforma, if required, and stored as part of your school's documentation for implementing the program.
