What a fabulous book! Wellbeing can often be misinterpreted, especially when considered within an educational setting, and this book rights that wrong. The balance of voices, the wealth of experience, the practical suggestions and the space for reflections make it an invaluable read for any school or educationalist considering wellbeing.
This really is a big book. The structure of leading, educating, learning, engaging and including well is a simple yet reflective take on wellbeing. You can make a difference for your stakeholders’ wellbeing by kicking tokenistic approaches into touch so wellbeing becomes a genuine focus seen and felt in day-to-day actions.
