Interactive My world triangle - When working with children or young people, the My World Triangle is used at every stage to think about the whole world of the child or young person.
It is particularly helpful to use the My World Triangle to gather more information from other sources (some of it possibly specialist), to identify the strengths and pressures in the child or young person’s world. This may include information about health or learning, offending behaviour or information about issues affecting parenting.

These Shared Resources are included as examples of what has been developed in particular settings to provide information for staff, including supply and non teaching staff.. They may have to be adapted to meet needs in other contexts.
We hope they give you ideas and inspiration to develop ones to suit your own school or pupil.
