A wellbeing support programme for all our colleagues

Our R & R programme is all about our holistic health, including the physical and emotional. As we reintegrate back into our schools – good levels of wellbeing are essential if we are to feel motivated and engaged, resilient and able to deal effectively with new demands, as well as ’bounce forward’ from new challenges.

Our vision

Developing our relational culture

Relational-Cultural theory: Fostering relationships are the source of meaning and empowerment.

In The Five Good Things Jean Baker Miller characterised these “good relationships”:

  1. Zest
  2. Clarity
  3. Sense of worth
  4. Productivity
  5. A desire for more connection

In these current times we need to:

1. Promote openness about mental wellbeing, and encourage colleagues to feel comfortable sharing concerns.
2. Ensure colleagues know how to access external sources of support
3. Ensure the mental wellbeing of our school staff remains high on the agenda

Our commitment: Ensuring our full learning community know they matter through the process of connection.

Providing hope and comfort!

Every member of staff feels hope and comfort from their leaders and each other

Every child feels hope and comfort from all teachers as soon as they see them in the playground

Every parent feels hope and comfort as they continue the interactions that have been built on over this period

Our learning community will thrive!
