Do you know your staff well enough?
A thought-provoking article by Kulvarn Atwal in the TES today highlights the issues of staff wellbeing in schools, but can equally apply to other educational settings.
Kulvarn suggests that rather than tokenistic gestures such as buying cake for the staff room, a real investment is needed from school leaders in ensuring teachers have a sense of worth and feel valued. He suggests that an important factor in ensuring staff wellbeing is ‘knowing staff well enough’.
