Research repeatedly provides us with evidence that students who have better health and wellbeing are likely to achieve better academically. Academic success can have a strong positive impact on students’ subjective sense of life satisfaction and levels of wellbeing in adulthood. In turn, children’s overall level of wellbeing impacts on their behaviour and engagement in school and their ability to acquire academic competence in the first place.
Schools are key places for shaping general wellbeing. What are the key social and emotional competencies a school can support and develop to help our young people? This session will explore this question, amongst others, as we discuss the factors that affect the association between students’ capacity to learn, their academic attainment and wellbeing.
This free event is an opportunity to hear Ms Annette Rome as she speaks to a panel of educators, students and researchers about the role of wellbeing in effective learning. The audience will have an opportunity to take part in the discussion and explore any questions they may have.
