About the framework

Whole school wellbeing

Wellbeing comprises many aspects of a young person’s life including their emotional, physical, cognitive and spiritual health and happiness. When children and young people feel a sense of belonging and experience safe and trusting relationships they are more engaged and successful learners. Schools play a key role in creating positive learning environments where everyone is respected and diversity is valued.

The Australian Student Wellbeing Framework supports Australian schools to be safe, inclusive and connected learning communities that promote positive relationships and wellbeing as foundation for students to reach their full potential.
