:: Improving staff emotional health and wellbeing ::
Outline
This course will enable school leaders to critically explore the issues surrounding the emotional health and wellbeing of school staff, the pressures that can lead to staff feeling stressed and how this can, in turn, lead to difficulties within the school community. The benefits of using mindfulness as a whole-school approach will be explored as one solution to these issues. The course will also provide an invaluable opportunity to share approaches with colleagues in the room. This will enable staff to critically evaluate current approaches used to improve the emotional health and wellbeing of school staff. This course is mainly aimed at primary schools, but the issues are similar in secondary schools so secondary colleagues are welcome to attend.
Outcomes:
By attending the course, participants will:
  • have considered the physiology and psychology of stress and how this can lead to anxiety and depression amongst school staff
  • have the opportunity to practise and learn about the power of mindfulness for staff (and pupils) in improving emotional health and wellbeing
  • look at the pressures of the teaching and support staff role and think creatively about addressing these issues
  • consider whole-school approaches that can ease or increase pressure on staff and the government attempts to reduce these issues
  • be provided with data about teacher workload and the impact it can potentially have on a person’s personal and professional life
Suitable for:
  • Business Managers
  • Deputy Headteachers
  • Headteachers
