Well-being for children at school

For several years now, the French school of Oslo has set up a well-being center, bringing together the skills of a speech therapist, a well-being reference, a guidance counselor and the French school nurse.

2 professionals ensure the well-being of all children in the school on a daily basis.

In collaboration with families, they ensure the follow-up of children with a particular profile or requiring educational support and manage conflicts or the anti-mobbing unit.



  • The well-being referent (RBE), the guidance counselor-psychologist (COP), the speech therapist and the school nurse work together in a sustainable approach to promote well-being, health and orientation.
  • Together, they work to improve the school climate of the school, to promote living together and the educational success of each student.
  • They offer sessions and conferences for students, the educational team and parents. Students and their families can also be received in individual interviews.
What the Norwegian law is saying :

Well-being referent

This position of well-being referent was created in order to strengthen within our institution, a serene and benevolent school climate.

The WBR implements various actions whose objectives are to carry out prevention, monitoring, to promote living together, and to train in citizenship. She also has a listening role with students, who may encounter psycho-social difficulties.

Speech therapist

The LFO's speech therapist's mission is to support students with difficulties in oral or written language, and/or communication. She is also one of the animators of the well-being center.

Guidance counselor - psychologist

The LFO supports students in their choices and their steps to continue their higher education studies.

The Orientation Counselor-Psychologist accompanies, in collaboration with the educational teams and the parents, the realization of the orientation project of each student.


The objective of the anti-mobbing unit is, on one hand, to listen to the pupils who suffer and to provide them with answers and guidance and on the other hand to develop a prevention plan. An investigation will automatically be made on all reported cases.

All staff members are urged to be vigilant in order to detect whether students are victims of treatment affecting their integrity in the playgrounds and in the common spaces of the school, whether in physical or verbal form.

All staff have an obligation to report to the anti-mobbing unit that they know of or suspect cases of discrimination, harassment or other negative treatment.

“You are victims. You are witnesses. Do not remain silent!”

The French school in Oslo is subject to both Norwegian and French safety laws and regulations. Also, we organize security drills regularly throughout the year.

3 types of exercises take place:
  • Fire drill / twice a year, September and April
  • Containment exercise / once a year in October
  • Intrusion exercise / once a year in January

The fire drill involves evacuating buildings to regroup in the planned areas of Oscar Gate and Behrens gate to allow firefighters to intervene.

Containment concerns major events that take place outside the high school and allows the school community to take shelter.

It can be an accident, pollution, meteorological event, etc … Either the alert is launched by the municipality of Oslo, or the French Embassy asks us to confine ourselves in relation to a threat from the French community.

The intrusion alert is given if a major threat is identified within the establishment (attack, threatening intrusion, student, staff or parent threatening the safety of the school community).

For these 3 exercises, there are 3 different sound alerts, audible within the establishment:

  • The fire bell is loud, shrill or continuous
  • The containment alert is the national signal and if it is internal to the LFO or in the event of an exercise, it is accompanied by a voice message “this is a containment alert, please join your containment zone”, followed by the same message in Norwegian.
  • The intrusion alert is a police alarm type alert that is accompanied by a voice message “Please note this is an intrusion alert”, followed by the same message in Norwegian.

The pupils are trained from the start of these different exercises and we have a precise protocol with instructions for pupils and staff, as well as a crisis unit which is set up in conjunction with the Norwegian embassy and authorities.

All the exercises are an opportunity to reassure the students, and the teachers are very concerned about the well-being of the students at all times of the process.

A security committee is also set up every year within the framework of the Establishment Council.
