Why is Well-being so important to the NAHT?
Supporting staff mental health can have a significant impact on sickness absence rates, employee motivation, performance and retention. With a bulge in pupil numbers and over 20% of new teachers leaving the profession within their first 2 years of teaching and 33% after 5 years, a key priority for headteachers is to create a supportive school culture that nurtures all staff.
The challenge will be how this can be done without impacting on pupil learning or creating more pressure on school leaders.
Mental well-being doesn't have one set meaning. We might use it to talk about how we feel, how well we're coping with daily life or what feels possible at the moment. Good mental well-being doesn't mean you're always happy or unaffected by your experiences. But poor mental wellbeing can make it more difficult to cope with daily life.
Our programme for the day includes some excellent speakers; thought leaders in the field of wellbeing in education. Take this time to learn more about yourself, develop your strengths and feel empowered to take charge of your health.
Who Should attend
School leaders- Head Teachers, Deputy Head Teachers, Assistant Head Teachers and SLT including SBMs - all phases.
