In episode 19 of the TTS Talking Teachers’ podcast, Steven Bollar and educational consultant, Matthew Savage, look at the importance of contextualising the wellbeing data that you collect.
Matthew discusses the concept that, too often, behaviour and problems are looked at in isolation. He opens up the idea that rather than trying to solve the obvious problem, teachers should look at the bigger picture to see what else is impacting the child at this time. Often, the system needs to change rather than the child.
