About the Webinar

This webinar will help to support school leaders, SLT teams and school governors to formulate practical guidance and strategy around managing their own mental health and wellbeing.

The new Ofsted inspections place a greater responsibility of workload management and wellbeing of staff on the shoulder of senior leaders. In the DfE Governance Handbook 2019:

  • Boards are expected to have due regard for the wellbeing and mental health of the school’s leadership team and teaching staff more broadly.
  • Consideration should also be given towards designating a governor or trustee as a wellbeing champion to provide strategic support to the school leadership team as appropriate.

In this webinar, mental health and wellbeing expert, Anna Bateman, explores recent findings from the Teacher Wellbeing Index and how senior leadership teams can take practical steps towards looking after their own mental health and wellbeing.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding core elements of the Teacher Wellbeing Index and its relevance for SLT

  • Identifying the key recommendations and issues that SLT members must be aware of

  • Practical strategies senior leaders can take to help manage mental health and wellbeing

  • The role of governors and strategic direction that boards should oversee

  • Further reading and additional resources to help support continuous learning

Thought provoking

I've just watched the Supporting Senior Leaders Wellbeing: DIY Guide to Your Mental Health. I am a new parent governor at a large mainstream Primary School in Kings Heath Birmingham. In previous years I have been Chair of Governors at a nearby Primary Special School. at this school I developed relationships with most of the staff and pupils . I have a strong understanding of how the school 'worked'. This made me feel equipped to support the Senior Leaders with their wellbeing and which I hope I did. This webinar has reminded me just how important it is for Senior Leaders to continually consider their own well being and the well being of others. As a new parent governor, I need to get more involved in the school and get to know the staff more and develop a trust between us . There are already many things in place to support the well being of staff - there is a counsellor employed by the school, some staff meet on a Monday after school to have a run - rather them than me. I believe there is going to be a weekly yoga session set up, so the school ALREADY values wellbeing. This webinar has got me thinking...... a lot - Thank you!! Next step will be for our governing body to work out which one of us is best suited to be the governor who supports this work more.

Fantastic webinar, also for anyone that reads this, the Headspace and Calm app she mentions is free for anyone that works in education. If you search Headspace/Calm for educators, it will direct you into getting a full subscription for free. Brilliant for mental health!
