Building resilience
and mental wellbeing for children and young people

Student friendly version of the WMF results

We've created a resource for students to explore the Wellbeing Measurement Framework. 


Notes this resource was created while the WMF was in use as part of the Headstart Kernow evaluation. If you are using the WMF post Headstart - the resource will still be of use.

The resource can be used to:

  • engage students who are about to do tthe survey 
  • allow students to understand and explore the results in your school and engage them in working with you to improve wellbeing in the whole school community 

We can send a print copy of the resource or you can download it here:
