Workshop objectives

Staff absence is a drain on school resources, finances and management time.

Mental health problems are the leading cause of sickness absence. 70 million work days are lost each year due to mental health problems in the UK, costing employers approximately £2.4 billion per year.  About one in four people in Britain has this diagnosis at some point in their life and education is considered to be one of the most stressful professions.

Good staff wellbeing practices can cultivate a mentally healthy school, retain and motivate staff, promoting pupil wellbeing and attainment.

This webinar session aims to provide an overview of these topics and to consider positive, practical steps that schools can take.   The presentation will be kept to 1 hour maximum, to allow time for Q &A and discussion.

Core themes of the programme include:

  • The links between staff attendance, mental health and wellbeing.

  • The legal framework.

  • How to manage staff with poor attendance.

  • How to support and manage staff with mental health problems.

  • What can we do to improve staff wellbeing?
