Staff Wellbeing

Our staff are our greatest resource.  We place a significant emphasis on staff wellbeing to ensure our staff have the capacity to meet all the needs of our pupils.  Staff wellbeing is supported in many ways including:

  • Fortnightly visits and supervision from Dr Lj Ducksbury – Psychologist. Staff can book an appointment to receive this supervision with the Senior Leadership Team
  • Daily staff debriefs happen at the end of every day
  • Each year staff training days and INSET sessions are allocated to Staff wellbeing
