Staff well being policy
School Aim Statement
Coleshill Church of England Primary School & Nursery is a voluntary aided Church of England school. All staff and governors aim to make the school a place where Christian love and commitment are expressed in everyday life.
We aim therefore to provide a happy, caring, safe and stimulating school where everyone is valued and there is a high level of expectation in all aspects of school life.
All children will have access to the Early Years Foundation Stage, the National Curriculum, R.E. and the broader curriculum through a wide range of educational opportunities, enabling them to reach their full potential.
We will encourage partnerships with parents, governors, the church and the local community.
Through these aims we hope that children will become active, healthy and responsible members of society.
This policy has been revised by the headteacher in consultation with staff and governors.
Statement of Intent
This school is committed to developing a working environment that promotes the health and well-being of staff, pupils and the organisation as a whole.
- To provide a supportive environment where individuals can carry out their tasks with as little stress as possible.
- To enable staff to recognise stress and decide what it is possible to do something about.
- Easy to change, in the short term, with little or no help from others.
- Possible to change, perhaps with the help of others, with resources and in a longer time scale.
- Difficult or impossible to change, may need to be accepted or coped with.
Equal Opportunities and special Needs
In line with the Special Needs’ and Equal Opportunities’ policies of the school, we will value everybody equally, irrespective of race, religion, gender, culture or ability. Stress is not a weakness and no-one should feel that they are failing because they are feeling stressed.
We hope that parents support our attempts to reduce stress in our working lives.
This policy is a working document. The headteacher and staff will review it triennially.
