Child and Student Wellbeing

The 2018-2021 Department of Education Child and Student Wellbeing Strategy: Safe, Well and Positive Learners was published on 28 June 2018.

The Wellbeing Strategy has been developed to support our Wellbeing Goal under the 2018-2021 Department of Education Strategic Plan, Learners First: Every Learner Every Day.

The Wellbeing Strategy supports the Tasmanian Child and Youth Wellbeing Framework  and adopts the six ARACY  wellbeing domains: Loved and Safe, Material Basics, Healthy, Learning, Participating and Positive sense of culture and identity.

A key action of the Student Wellbeing Strategy is to develop valid and reliable measures of wellbeing. This is being progressed through the annual Student Wellbeing Survey for students in Years 4 to 12 in Tasmanian Government schools.

COVID-19

The 2020 Student Wellbeing Survey commenced on 10 March 2020 and closed 3 April 2020. During the course of the four-week survey period, the COVID-19 crisis had a major impact on student’s attendance at school, which made it challenging for some schools to complete the survey.
Further details on opportunities to undertake the survey in Term 3 2020, and provision of school data reports will be communicated early Term 2.

Resources for parents and students to support their wellbeing are available on the Learning from Home Support page.
