In 2015 we published the findings of a joint study with think tank 2020health. The study looked at the need for a Head of Wellbeing in every UK secondary school.

Following the study, Nuffield Health worked with Wood Green School in Witney, on a ground-breaking two-year wellbeing pilot. In 2016, a Head of Wellbeing was seconded to the school to provide more effective support and infrastructure, to improve the physical and emotional wellbeing of both pupils and staff.

The findings were published in November 2018 and have led to wellbeing becoming an integral part of everyday life at Wood Green School. Having employed a part-time Wellbeing Lead, the school continues to deliver a wellbeing curriculum, targeted at Years 7, 8 and 9, drawing on learnings from the pilot.

Read the findings from our ‘Improving wellbeing in schools’ Evidence and recommendations from a ‘Head of Wellbeing’ pilot here.

Our research has helped us develop swap, our innovative School Wellbeing Activity Programme.


Wellbeing in schools

We spoke to students, staff and the head teacher at Wood Green School to see what the Head of Wellbeing pilot meant to them. Watch our video to see what they said.
