The purpose of the network is to build and sustain strong relationships and communication with wellbeing leads within SEIC and to support the development of approaches which reduce the stigma related to mental health and promote strategies to support positive emotional health and wellbeing.
This would include creating space to share challenges and find solutions, to enhance the system through collaboration, sharing practice and facilitating opportunities for professional learning.
The Wellbeing network is empowered to be self-sustaining and sets its own agenda to drive improvements that are relevant and responsive to the needs identified by the members. A SEIC Quality Improvement Officer will link with the network.
By working collaboratively at establishment, local authority, regional and national level through Education Scotland’s South East Improvement Team (SEIT) the network could accelerate progress giving the best chance to achieve excellence and ensure all children have the same opportunities for success.
