Webinar on 2nd November (6-6.45pm)

Whole school performance relies on identifying the needs of individual students, planning classes, and ultimately providing a student-centred approach and then tracking their progress and showing impact. This webinar will discuss the rationale for this statement for schools and the research principles that underpin it to highlight the practical implications of how to deliver meaningful and measurable school improvement.

Professor Amanda Kirby will explore the effectiveness of whole child strategies and practices that seek to improve pupil health and wellbeing and offer important benefits for whole-school improvement as well as for pupils measuring their wellbeing in order to enable children to become school ready and life ready.
