How to ensure staff wellbeing in a high-pressure, high stress profession.


This session looks seriously at the mental health crisis that is growing amongst school staff and how we can develop a more health and sustainable way of running our schools and developing staff to thrive rather than survive. Looking at: common mistakes made by leadership and how to avoid them; the truth about employee engagement; how to embed wellbeing into your school culture; challenging the ‘busy’ badge-of-honour culture; how to utilise your middle leaders to transform your staff team; simple eveyday tips to building a happier working environment and the number one thing that your staff need most!

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
