This is a site for education and health professionals to access resources re wellbeing support for children and families.

Leading Lights provides guidance pathways to help teachers and other school staff in Canterbury recognise and respond to the needs of individual children in Years 1 to 8 in the following key areas:

  • Behaviour
  • Health
  • Learning
  • Safety
  • Wellbeing and Belonging

The pathways include clear, concise, locally-agreed information on interventions and strategies to use at school, as well as when to seek further support, who can provide it, and how to make requests.

The pathways and support pages are developed collaboratively by educators, support agencies, general practitioners, hospital clinicians, and a wide range of other education and health professionals working with specialist writers.

You can register to access these resources here.
