Getting it right for every child (Girfec): evaluating wellbeing guide

Guide for professionals in education and third sector settings.


Getting it right for every child (GIRFEC) and Curriculum for Excellence are central to improving outcomes for Scotland’s children and young people. Both emphasise that promoting, supporting and safeguarding the wellbeing of children is a responsibility for all staff working in a school or nursery.

We’ve developed a wellbeing-focused guide for early years establishments and schools, aimed at supporting professional dialogue and self-evaluation.

By focusing on wellbeing, the guide can help professionals to develop the Getting it right for every child approach in education settings.

Staff are already using the guide to structure discussion and work through their own audit processes.

See the attached 'Guide for schools and nurseries' in the supporting files section.
