The pressures of coronavirus mean that looking after the wellbeing of your staff is especially important. Use these resources to help you spot wellbeing challenges, take the appropriate next steps, and support a whole-school focus on wellbeing.

Spot wellbeing challenges

Take action

  • See how Hardenhuish School develops practical solutions to staff wellbeing and workload challenges through its wellbeing working group, and how you can make this approach work in your school. 
  • If you've identified someone who needs support, an individual action plan may help them get the support they need. Find out whether this approach is right for your school, and download our resources to help you create plans for those who need them.
  • Knowing what to do when someone is struggling with their mental health or wellbeing can be difficult, especially where confidentiality is concerned. Our guidance can help you identify appropriate next steps.

Develop a whole-school approach

  • You'll provide more effective individual wellbeing and mental health support if you have a whole-school approach. Our expert guidance can help you develop your approach, and you can use our template to help you create a whole-school mental health and wellbeing action plan.
  • Research from the DfE shows that staff feel better supported when they have opportunities for peer-to-peer mentoring and development. Find out how you can develop this in your school - coming soon!
