This article has been brought to you by Slough Borough Council's School Health & Wellbeing Project Officer, Susan Dyer, for the attention of all staff working in any education setting.
We are very aware that education settings have been under immense pressure with the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. School leaders, teachers and other education staff have been in the front line dealing with new challenges on a daily basis and working tirelessly throughout to support pupils and their families. As a result, supporting and promoting the wellbeing of education staff themselves, has never been more important than it is now. Below are details of two new resources we have produced to help support the wellbeing of education staff in Slough.
