We know from our latest Teacher Wellbeing Index that school staff are experiencing more symptoms of poor mental health. We also know that great relationships at work can help you to deal with the stresses of school life.

We are pleased to bring together a panel who will explore the power of peer relationships especially during challenging times.

We’ll ask:

  • What do we know about the power of good relationships?
  • How can school leaders help colleagues to support one another’s wellbeing at school?
  • What can school staff do if a colleague is dealing with poor mental health?

We will hear from:

• Chair, Sinéad Mc Brearty, CEO of Education Support

And an expert panel:

  • Sarah Mullins, Deputy Head and thought leader on mental health at school
  • Lynne Leigh, Headteacher, Leigh Church of England Primary Academy
  • Sanjay Badhan, Lead Therapeutic Practitioner and Designated Safeguarding Lead at James Brindley Academy and qualified person-centred therapist.

Each speaker brings a different perspective and set of experiences to this rich topic. The event takes place on Zoom on Tuesday 8th February 2022 at 4-5pm.

It is free to register and open to school leaders, and anyone else working in education who might find it helpful. Following the discussion, there will be time for questions.

We hope you can join us!
