Staff Well-being

Staff Wellbeing at St Mary's School.


The wellbeing and workload of staff members is taken seriously in all schools in the St Edmundsbury & Ipswich Diocesan Multi Academy Trust (MAT). The Church of England is committed to promoting “life in all its fulness” and all schools have links to local churches, clergy and the Diocesan education team, who support wellbeing in schools as part of our Christian care for staff and pupils. Leaders in the MAT and each individual school have taken positive action to reduce workload and support staff wellbeing.  The MAT has established a working group of Headteachers to review and address these matters across all MAT schools, as well as undertaking a MAT-wide wellbeing and survey, the results of which have been shared with schools.  While recognising the importance of supporting staff members, it is essential to take into account the entitlement of all pupils to a high standard of education.


This statement should be reviewed and agreed by Local Governing Bodies, with school-specific amendments as appropriate.
