We care about our people

The wellbeing of our team members is essential to the success of our school and the progress of each student. We have developed an organisational approach to workplace wellbeing.  Our goal is to accompany staff in taking responsibility for their own health and wellbeing both inside and out of work. We wish to foster and encourage openness and dialogue.

We are committed to embedding wellbeing practices into the school’s daily life and into all aspects of our operations. We strive for a healthy workplace where our people flourish and reach their full potential. We believe that workplace wellbeing is not a destination but a journey where there is always room for improvement and a need for sustainable behaviour change.

Our Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) is employee-led by a team of Staff Wellbeing Champions who put in place social structures and regular wellbeing initiatives to create an environment that fosters a sense of community and support; we expect everyone to do their best and reach a high level of job satisfaction. This common goal plays a vital role in ensuring an open dialogue between stakeholders. 

We advocate mental health and offer tailored support and signposting when needed. Because we strongly believe that we have a duty of care to our team and are responsible for their health and safety, we work closely with an experienced Occupational Health practitioner to support our people as much as we can.

As soon as you join our team, you will perceive the strong sense of community. And you will be blown away by the level of collaboration that takes place amongst us. This is the secret to an agile, resilient and high performing team. That is why the Head of HR and Staff Wellbeing sits on the Senior Leadership Team.
