Supporting staff wellbeing during the return to school
To help and support others, we need to start with ourselves. This document includes ideas, links to resources and activities to support staff wellbeing.
Teachers are our heroes. During lockdown, they have adapted to teaching children remotely, worked tirelessly to support the children they teach, and have prepared for a sensitive transition back to school to reduce stress and anxiety for the children.
It is important to remember that Covid-19 and the lockdown will also have had an effect on the mental health and wellbeing of all members of the school staff. Similar measures should be put into place to support them as well as the children.
This resource includes tips for senior leaders, to help them support the wellbeing of their staff during the return to school.
