I’m a sucker for a good Infographic, and coming on the back of the announcements at BETT London 2019, I came across the Infographic below that goes deep on the latest research around the importance of Wellbeing and Positive Mindsets for both students and educators in the sector.
The research, conducted by The Economist’s Intelligence Unit came from interviews with school leaders, teachers and librarians in 15 countries and revealed that social and emotional wellbeing remains a high priority for schools. In fact, 70% stated this is fundamental for achieving student success.

I know first hand that the school two of my children attend are focused heavily on Wellbeing, not just for students but also for staff. They blog regularly about this journey here.
