Pupil welfare

The objectives of pupil welfare include promoting and maintaining the pupil’s good skills, good mental and physical health and social well-being. Schools implement communal pupil welfare through the entire school personnel and, when dealing with the issues of an individual pupil, individualised pupil welfare and pupil welfare services.

Pupil welfare services include the services of the school social worker and psychologist as well as school health care.

Pupils have the right to seek the services independently, without the guardian’s consent. Guardians, teachers and the school’s other employees may also contact pupil welfare. The guardian is notified of contacts.

Pupil welfare activities are statutory (Pupil and Student Welfare Act) and free of charge to pupils.
