Take your teaching staff through a journey of personal development which deepens self-discovery, leading to ownership of well-being.
The range of topics include:
-Power of thought
-How to switch off
-Developing resilience & building positive relationships
-Managing stress & combating anxiety
-How food affects your mood
By the end of the session each member will have a framework for their own well-being and a toolkit to takeaway and add to.
The day includes a nutritious buffet lunch which reflects the session and showcases the diet of a teacher to sustain energy and vitality for the important work we do.
This retreat is led by Health, Mind set & Well-being Coaches, who are industry experts, each with over 20 years of previous experience within HR and Education.
I am an Associate Consultant for Teach Well Alliance and work with schools to introduce the staff well-being and mental health programme - the Teach Well Toolkit – I help schools to implement a culture of staff well-being and mental health.. The programme involves all staff within the school, teachers, support staff, admin staff, technical staff, and site staff. The first step is to find out what your team think about staff well-being and mental health.
From that point I can work with your school leaders or well-being lead to identify the areas which have been identified as requiring more support. This can easily be used within the school’s development plan and milestones reviewed in line with all of the schools priorities.
The only programme to focus exclusively on developing a culture of staff wellbeing and mental health.
You asked, 'How do we implement whole-school staff wellbeing?'
We listened. And produced the answer: the Teach Well Toolkit.
I work as a Mental Health Ambassador for Go Vox. As a head teacher, I would have loved to have benefited from this product. I am passionate about staff well-being and made time to get to know my staff, but that wasn't easy! Even with the best intentions, the hours within the school day and the ever increasing demands of the timetable made it very difficult to have conversations that mattered and enabled me to truly know what the staff were feeling.
I love the efficiency of Go Vox!
Through a simple 8-10 questions as a head teacher (from the comfort of your home) you are able to elicit exactly who requires support and in which area. At the same time you gain a happiness factor (scale range up to 20) for each member of staff.
The innovative dashboard shows any red flags identified as a result of the survey. These red flags would be unarguably a great place to start in addressing any issues identified. These issues can be rectified with a chat over a cup of coffee, delegated to your well-being lead, and if necessary may be referred to a specialist such as myself to provide additional support.

As schools are increasingly evolving towards a business model of delivery, the administrative demands, along with pressures to provide quality ‘customer service’ and ‘demonstrate productivity’ are growing to excessive levels.
The administrative tasks are often disseminated between many people within the school with limited experience and skills, and to teachers - adding to their already excessive workload.
This results in lack of accountability, high staffing costs, incomplete tasks, errors and inaccurate/out of date data. All of which negatively impact on productivity, efficiency, wellbeing and ‘customer service’.
OFSTED, in their re-draft Inspection Handbook (2019), highlight the need to reduce workload for teachers, recognising the negative impact that it has on Teaching and Learning. Using smart solutions, can significantly promote the well-being of staff in your school.
This is why I support cloud Connect.
