About the Webinar

Staff well-being has never been more important. Having a healthy team is important to the entire education system, including the well-being and mental health of children. It should be a central part of a more holistic school approach to mental health. This webinar is for school leaders who want further context and direction on this topic. It will also offer ideas and strategies on how to implement practices to help improve staff well-being in their own school.

  • Understanding government policy on staff well-being, recruitment and retention and why these policies were developed

  • Understanding aspects of the draft OFSTED framework for inspection which are supportive of staff well-being and reducing workload

  • The context within which staff stress or unhappiness may develop and how to address it

  • Spotting signs of stress in staff

  • Practical ideas to implement in school
