Event description


This course covers three key elements. First, School leaders will explore what is meant by the effective management of sickness absence in schools, and how school staff may be supported and helped back to work from short and long-term illness. Secondly, you will discuss and analyse sickness absence policies in order to identify good and poor practice. Finally, School leaders will explore some key skills, during which they will have the opportunity to share best practice. By the end of the day, delegates will have developed some practical ideas and skills that can be taken back and applied in their schools.
