Supporting staff wellbeing in schools
This resource has the following types:
Teaching is a tough job. It can be immensely rewarding but also physically and emotionally draining. Safeguarding and mental health issues can be intense and complex. Children’s behavioural and emotional problems are increasing.
Many schools recognise this and provide support for their staﬀ . The new focus on children’s mental health, though serves as an important reminder to us that we must couple support for school staﬀ with the ambitions we have for children’s wellbeing. If we don’t we will be letting down all school staﬀ.
If we want our school staﬀ to do what’s asked of them, then we need to make sure that their mental health and wellbeing is eﬀectively supported.
