Positive Staffroom Practice

Positive Staffroom Practice

Your Challenges

  • Increased workload
  • Lack of time to complete tasks
  • Problem children – experiencing low mood
  • Outside of school incidents impacting on your staff’s Mental Health
  • Higher levels of accountability
  • Planning and marking expectations
  • Pressure from parents
  • An ever-increasing demand from the curriculum

Benefits We Bring

  • Staff will understand whether their current wellbeing behaviours are supporting them to achieve, or actually hindering, their ability to function
  • All individuals will get a greater understanding into the group’s current stresses, highlighting reoccurring issues
  • Staff will gain crucial insight into research-based models that we then apply to understand what the strengths and next steps are of the staff behaviours
  • This then sets up a monitored intervention over the next 6 to 12 months

Training – What You Get

This after School training will take all staff through a journey of active behaviour assessment against the 5 ways to wellbeing.


The outcomes of this analysis will link throughout the session to current stresses and strains as a teacher/school leader in your school – this will be discussed using an Edward De Bono’s hats approach


Once the behaviour snapshot has been undertaken, action planning, driven by your staff using their new insight, is then undertaken to bring the 5 ways to wellbeing to life inside the school day (We have found this the best approach to take).


Additionally, your school can look (Optional) at targeting staff with an end of session SLT meeting: Through a discussion-based approach, your SLT will highlight a number of staff they see as being isolated, withdrawn, presenting low mood or just in need of a wellbeing boost. These staff members are then planned into specific tasks alongside the pupils linked to the 5 ways that are then monitored by the SLT.


For schools looking to use this as an intervention to achieve a recognised Healthy Schools Award, this fits perfect, with 2 data snap shots set up to show starting points and progress linked to knowledge and behaviour change.

Ofsted Banner

Our practice supports your school to work towards ‘Good’ and ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted Common Inspection Framework judgements, by ensuring that:

  • Leaders engage effectively with learners and others in their community, including – where relevant – parents, carers, employers and local services
  • Leaders engage with their staff and are aware and take account of the main pressures on them. They are realistic and constructive in the way that they manage staff, including their workload and health.
