This guidance is for all those who have a responsibility for the social and emotional wellbeing of young people in secondary education. This includes teachers, support staff, governors and professionals with public health as part of their remit working in education (including the independent sector), local authorities, the NHS and the wider public, voluntary and community sectors.

It focuses on interventions to support all young people aged 11-19 who attend any education establishment.
Social and emotional wellbeing includes being happy, confident and in control, with the ability to solve and cope with problems and have good relationships with other people.

The six recommendations cover: strategy, the key principles and conditions, working in partnership with parents, families and young people, the curriculum, and training and professional development. They include:
• Secondary education establishments should have access to the specialist skills, advice and support they require.
• Practitioners should have the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to develop young people’s social and emotional wellbeing.
• Secondary education establishments should provide a safe environment which nurtures and encourages young people’s sense of self-worth, reduces the threat of bullying and violence and promotes positive behaviour.
• Social and emotional skills education should be tailored to the developmental needs of young people.
