HFL Education wellbeing quality mark logo

The HFL Education Wellbeing Quality Mark is a comprehensive self-assessment audit tool that allows education leaders to review strategies around wellbeing in schools and to adapt them to meet changing needs.

The HFL Education Wellbeing Quality Mark can be achieved over three or four terms and it allows schools to demonstrate a commitment to improving wellbeing across the entire school community.

How does the HFL Education Wellbeing Quality Mark work?

Over three terms, your school will benefit from ongoing support from a specialist wellbeing adviser while your school leadership teams work through a dedicated audit process that records and assesses existing school wellbeing approaches and examines areas for improvement.

As part of this process, you’ll be asked to identify a wellbeing project to be completed during the year.

During the programme, your dedicated HFL Wellbeing adviser will offer both face to face and remote support to review progress and impact, ensuring you get the most out of the process.

Areas covered in the programme include:

  • Belonging and inclusion

  • Wellbeing and mental health through the curriculum

  • Wider wellbeing

  • Pupil agency

  • Social and cultural capital for wellbeing

  • Therapeutic approaches to behaviour and wellbeing

  • Staff wellbeing

  • Staff training
