Wellbeing in Schools

The Attainment and Wellbeing Scrutiny Inquiry Panel have recently started to review issues around wellbeing in Schools across Swansea.  As part of this inquiry they have decided to visit a number of schools to look at good practice.  They made their first visit to Morriston Comprehensvie School today.  They spoke to the Headteacher and chair of governors along with the teacher responsible for pastoral care.

The issues discussed were based around what schools do to ensure that when young people are in school they are in a position to learn and what interventions are used to address issues around childrens emotional wellbeing.

The Panel also met with a group of 16 young people aged between 11 and 17 years old, asking them:

  • What do pupils need to do well in school?
  • What would stop pupils doing well in schools? and
  • How do you think pupils could be helped so that they can learn better?

Councillors will visit Hafod Primary School next later this week.
