Format: Paperback
This book is well written, engaging and above all, useful! I wasn't sure what to expect, but the ideas for teachers are excellent and it includes how to approach the subject from a whole school as well as an individual teacher's persepctive. I will definitely be taking this into my school and sharing it with other staff members. So many books written for teachers are either spoon feeding or only theory. The great thing about this is that it combines both theory and practise and makes you want to read it. More importantly it makes you want to go into the classroom and try it out.

In recent years it seems that education has become increasingly focused on academic results and league tables. Where is the well being of the child in all this? This book redresses the balance and offers well researched evidence for bringing resilience, happiness, thriving in ints broadest sense back into the awareness of teachers, both for them and their pupils. It also offers clear guidance and tools as to how this can be integrated into the school curriculum and its ethos. It does not deny the value of a sound academic basis in the school but broadens this to demonstrate how it will also undoubtedly be better achieved if the whole well being and welfare of each child is considered and addressed. It seems to me that parents as well as teachers could benefit from reading and implementing the approach so clearly laid out in this thought provoking. long overdue and essential book.

I loved this book and couldn't put it down. At last, we not only have someone who can talk knowledgeably about how to bring wellbeing onto the curriculum, but who has also made a thorough study of the evidence for teaching wellbeing.

Although I like to know what works, and to have practical descriptions from lessons, I also want to know why it works; without the evidence you can't adapt that knowledge to make it fit new situations. So if you have dipped into SEAL but haven't really been inspired get this book.

I'd heard a lot about the Wellbeing Programme at Wellington College. The Principal, Anthony Seldon,is a first rate spokesman for the difference wellbeing makes, not just to personal happiness and performance, but also to nurturing a strong supportive community. What I didn't know is that Ian Morris, the author of the book, is the Head of Wellbeing there and is the man behind the wellbeing curriculum. His post combines PSHE and Religious studies with Wellbeing. I like that, it takes this often underrated curriculum area up a notch from "how not to undermine your wellbeing" to "try this for a happy, healthy life"

Wellbeing is not just about feeling OK, it is about knowing what brings the best out in yourself and others. Now why shouldn't that take centre stage in any school?

I found this on the bookshelves of a friend, and ordered my own copy as soon as I got home. The more I read it, the better I think it is, and the more strongly I feel that all teachers should be made to read this. It is easily readable, the opinions are backed up by research, and it is consistently sensible and sensitive. Bravo.
