Whole School Approach - Audit Tools
Here we provide information on / access to a range of audit tools we hope will meet a range of needs and support individual schools. We believe in an asset-based approach to audit - enabling you and the school community to recognise and celebrate what's in place and working well already... They include:
A quick and easy 'Litmus Test'
(using the one created by Dr Pooky Knightsmith in the Mentally Healthy Schools Workbook)
Six Questions, 'gut reactions', on a scale of 1 to 10 and an opportunity to quickly engage and involve stakeholder groups - C&YP, staff, parents, governors et al that will help identify strengths and areas to focus on. and identify where the priorities of different stakeholders are. Plus an option to print a summary report saved each time you do it.
Slightly more in-depth that the Litmus Test focusing on some specific aspects of the PHE priniciples and created with Cornwall in mind. With a summary report saved each tiime.
SWAN Reflective Tool
Supportive, Welcoming, Altogether, Nurturing using a Graduated Response.
