Summary Note The headings of the Key Findings are: "The Department's performance indicator for wellbeing has not been reported on ... Some funding for wellbeing is inflexible with gaps that can increase the risk of inequitable outcomes … Schools need better alignment of the wide range of policy and resources … Schools need a clear service model to deliver effective support for wellbeing … The Department has not effectively prioritised and consolidated tools, systems and reporting to support student wellbeing … Complex case management requires specific models and resourcing … Schools link with a large number of external providers to support students … Around two-thirds of sampled schools did not have adequate student wellbeing performance measures … The Department has not provided adequate guidance on student suspension rates." - p. 3-5.
Summary: "The New South Wales Department of Education has a commitment to student wellbeing, and has introduced several reforms in recent years, notably the 'Local Schools, Local Decisions', the 'Supported Students, Successful Students', and the 'Every Student is Known, Valued and Cared For' initiatives and the 2015 Wellbeing Framework. This report presents the findings and recommendations of an audit on how well secondary schools are promoting and supporting the wellbeing of their students and how well the Department is supporting secondary schools in this endeavour. It finds though the Department's wellbeing initiatives are supported by research and consultation, the outcomes have yet to be measured or reported on and the schools' own reporting approaches are also variable. However, the Department's allocation of resources to deliver their initiatives is mostly well targeted and reflects a needs basis."
