It is important that we all play a part in supporting our children and young people as they grow up. In understanding and fostering the National Approach of GIRFEC (Getting It Right For Every Child), we have designed and created a wellbeing octopus called Calamari SHANARRI or ‘Cal’ for short.

Each leg of Cal Stands for eight wellbeing indicators SHANARRI:

Safe, Healthy, Achieving, Nurtured, Active, Respected, Responsible and Included.

These indicators are supportive tools that encourage children and their family to understand wellbeing. Using SHANARRI indicators in our Children’s Services helps to promote the principles which we believe are at the heart of Christian care. Those working with Children and Families can use Cal as a fun and interactive way for children to become familiar with wellbeing words, and to discuss their feelings.

We are still working on adding resources, please check again soon.
