About the Webinar

This webinar will provide senior leaders and headteachers with practical advice and techniques they can use to help support their own mental health and wellbeing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a year defined by crises, the wellbeing of senior school leaders has suffered more than most. The Teacher Wellbeing Index 2020 found that 89% of senior leaders described themselves as stressed during an October survey. This figure had jumped from 77% in July.

Whilst trying to maintain balance and continuity, senior leaders are working under immense pressure, facing daily uncertainty and having to choose between spending priorities. COVID-19 has compounded existing issues, with little room for senior leaders to think about themselves.

In this webinar, mental health and wellbeing expert, Anna Bateman, explains how school leaders can start to manage their own levels of anxiety and stress, what marginal-gains they can apply and why it’s so important to make time for themselves.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding how to implement practical techniques, quick-wins and a positive mindset to help improve wellbeing and reduce the risk of burnout.

  • Recognising where senior leaders can go to for support, to foster social connections and develop a support network which can help with achieving marginal gains.

  • Identifying how senior leaders can develop empathy for themselves and healthy coping strategies to help regulate their emotions.

  • Understanding how senior leaders can widen their window of tolerance, what factors they can and can’t control and where they can build positivity into daily routine.

  • Recognising what burnout is, when it takes place and how senior leaders can take control of their own wellbeing to ensure reduced levels of stress and anxiety.
