‘Being Well, Doing Well' Programme


Education Authority ‘Being Well, Doing Well’ Programme

Derrychrin PS are part of a new programme developed by the Education Authority called ‘Being Well, Doing Well’, creating a whole school approach to Emotional Health and Wellbeing. The programme is part of The Children & Young People’s Emotional Health & Wellbeing in Education Framework.

We know that when pupils feel valued, happy and secure, they will reach their full potential. It is important that we work with parents and families to ensure that we are doing everything we can to meet the needs of our pupils and to support the emotional health and wellbeing of all our pupils.

The programme aims to support schools to develop a Whole School Approach to Emotional Health and Wellbeing by resourcing them with:

  •  An Emotional Health & Wellbeing Framework to assist them to assess their current practice, identify needs and implement actions to develop the emotional health and wellbeing needs of everyone within the school;
  • A package of support which includes a BWDW Toolkit, advice, resources and training to assist them to improve the holistic outcomes of the whole school by addressing their emotional health and wellbeing needs; and
  • Emotional Health and Wellbeing outcomes which will reduce pupils barriers to learning and enhance their readiness to learn.
