The Blueprint

This ‘blueprint’ enables mental health champions to self-assess, and reflect on, the mental health provision evident in their school. Outcomes from the self-assessment can be used to inform school improvement.

It is estimated the blueprint will take 40-60 minutes to complete.

​In some settings, it may be appropriate to complete the blueprint in partnership with another member of staff (that has complementary responsibilities or knowledge regarding the school system).

​Experience suggests that the more detailed the self-assessment, and the better it reflects current state, the more useful the process at informing school improvement.

BACKGROUND AND SOURCES

The eight ‘sections’ included in the ‘blueprint’ are derived from:

– The NCB’s whole school framework for emotional wellbeing and mental health (Weare, 2015).

– The principles defined within with PHE’s whole school review tool to promote children and young people’s emotional health and wellbeing (PHE, 2015).
