Our school has signed up to the DfE's Wellbeing charter and we actively prioritise the wellbeing of our staff team. We are proud to have signed up for the Wellbeing Charter and we continuously review this to ensure that we are covering all eleven areas of the charter in our staff wellbeing work.
We have a Staff Working Group, consisting of members of the teaching and LSA teams and a dedicated governor for staff wellbeing, which meets every term.
We regularly consult our staff, both formally and informally, to gather their thoughts and feelings on all aspects their working environment. We give them frequent opportunities to ask questions, share their views and give feedback directly and confidentially. Governors and senior leadership are committed to listening to what our staff say and doing everything possible to promote a culture of open communication and wellbeing throughout our school.
Staff are encouraged to make the most of a range of wellbeing resources and training, both internal and external, and a respectful working environment is maintained throughout our school. Workload is carefully monitored to ensure staff are supported and can thrive personally as well as professionally.
In our recent Ofsted (05 05 22) the inspectors appreciated the work that the staff and governors go to in order to support wellbeing and workload.
Staff are confident in the leadership of the school. All staff responded on Ofsted’s online survey for staff that they are proud to work at this school and feel well supported.
Our school motto - Life in all its fullness – is what we prioritise for our staff as well as for our children.
