What is an individual action plan for wellbeing?
It's a document that you can use in line management meetings to help:
- Identify triggers that may affect a staff member's wellbeing
- Spot signs that a staff member may be struggling with their wellbeing
- Put in place measures to help with their wellbeing
First, you'll need a whole-school wellbeing culture
You'll likely find it very hard to help a person with their wellbeing if you don’t have a whole-school wellbeing culture.
Make sure that your school has a culture of openness about mental health and wellbeing, modelled by senior leaders. Your staff will feel more comfortable opening up if they see you doing the same.
