This Disability Strategy initiative uses a multi-tiered approach to support secondary students with additional mental health and socioemotional needs. It trials a self-assessment, goal setting, action planning and reflection (SAGAR) process that has an emerging evidence base for improving student wellbeing.
It also aims to increase the effectiveness of teachers supporting students’ socioemotional needs. It involves students in social emotional learning classes in Years 7 and 8 and 10 teachers.
