One Education Wellbeing Award
Being committed to the well-being of your staff is crucial in helping them lead happy and healthy lives and to maximise their performance at work.
Judgements in the new framework for ‘Outstanding’ Leadership & Management will include an assessment on ‘the extent to which leaders take into account the workload and well-being of their staff in order to deliver a high-quality education, while also developing and strengthening the quality of the workforce’.
We can help you achieve a strategic and integrated focus on your staff well-being with our Excellence for Well-being Award.
To assess your school’s commitment to well-being we will audit using criteria within the headline areas listed here.
We also offer an Action for Well-being Support Package. For more information call the One Education HR Team on 0844 967 1111.
Wellbeing at Work
The term ‘well-being’ has rocketed into the headlines and there is a pressing obligation for all organisations to understand and take seriously the need for a strategic and meaningful well-being strategy for staff.
- 5.4 days lost from each employee per year in the education sector due to absence, in comparison to the national average of 4.1
- Teaching features in the top three occupations to suffer from stress and depression
Leaders need to focus on three strands to build an effective scheme; the organisation as a whole, training for leadership & management and educating our workforce. Find out how we can put these into place at work to help staff feel healthy and improve their overall wellbeing.
Great potential for positive change in mental health & wellbeing
Our Specialist Educational Psychologist, Dr. Lynne Wadsworth, has written an article about mental health and well being to raise awareness for Mental Health Awareness Week 2019. Mental Health Awareness Week took place from Monday 13th to Sunday 19th May with the theme being Body Image.
There are some frightening statistics with regard to young people and mental health. NHS Digital (Mental Health of Children and Young People in England, 2017) report that:
- One in eight (12.8%) 5 to 19 year olds had at least one mental disorder when assessed in 2017.
- There has been a slight increase over time in the prevalence of mental disorder in 5 to 15 year olds (the age-group covered on all surveys in this series).
- One in twenty (5.5%) children aged between 2 and 4 years experienced at least one mental health problem.
