School reopening: how to reintegrate your staff team
Your staff may be anxious about returning to school, and might struggle to readjust to a 'new normal'. Find out how you can rebuild your team and support the wellbeing of all staff – whether they're in school or still working remotely – as everyone adapts to school reopening.
- Be mindful of the challenges staff may be facing now
- Include staff in your ongoing plans for reopening, to give them ownership
- Give staff a proper welcome back, and get them in the loop
- Give teaching staff a chance to reconnect with pupils, rather than jumping straight back into learning
- Set up regular 1-to-1s
- Be ready to support staff with grief
