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.

Evaluating whether student learning and wellbeing has improved as a result of implementing an initiative or strategy relies on a wealth of data to build evidence. This resource provides a range of whole-school, group and individual wellbeing initiatives and strategies. Sources of data associated with those programs are listed, providing schools with potential wellbeing improvement measures.

The tool will complement schools’ implementation of the School Excellence Policy through strategic planning and ongoing self-assessment.

Effective evidence-based wellbeing and inclusion programs enhance students' learning.
