Following extensive consultation and review in 2017, a draft proposal for a new national Framework was developed. The focus was on addressing contemporary issues facing Australian school communities and identifying ways to support schools to build learning environments where students feel safe, supported, included and connected. The Australian Government is committed to improving educational outcomes for all Australian students and recognises that children do better when respectful relationships are developed and maintained between home and school.
The Framework will be released towards the end of 2018. It will be available for schools, parents, educators and pre-service teachers on the Student Wellbeing Hub at www.studentwellbeinghub.edu.au. Additional resources, including a professional learning module, to engage school communities and support the uptake of the Framework in individual school contexts across Australia, will be featured as part of the new Framework.
