Event Details

Wellbeing of staff is a key priority for Leeds City Council and we are aware of the serious effects that the stresses and pressures of work can have on the wellbeing of Heads, Senior Leaders and staff in schools. 7 years ago Leeds City Council recognised that there was little in place that responded directly to the needs of Headteachers to assist them in managing their own wellbeing and resilience and thereby enabling them to support their staff and recognise their wellbeing needs. Initially the focus was directed more towards helping Heads help the staff in their schools.

As a forward thinking Council and Working in partnership with the Education Support Partnership Leeds council funded and trialled Ed Support’s Headspace Programme in Leeds for 20 Headteachers.

The feedback from those Heads was so positive that it was decided to continue to offer the programme on a yearly basis and we have currently just completed our 8th programme together. This equates to over 150 Headteachers having been able to benefit from this excellent support and we hope to be able to continue to offer this year on year.

We are really proud of the success of the programme here in Leeds and so with the Education Support Partnership we are holding a Wellbeing Showcase to celebrate and build on this success and provide Heads, Senior Leaders and Governors with information, advice and support to help sustain the wellbeing of all staff in schools.   

 The Showcase will cover:


  • Key note speeches from Chief Executives from LCC and Education Support.
  • Presentations from 2 Headteachers about what Headspace has meant for them and what they’ve done in their schools to promote wellbeing.
  • Practical wellbeing workshops
  • Presentations of what wellbeing help, support and services are available to Headteachers and their staff.
  • A chance to network and visit the wellbeing services exhibition.
  • Free lunch!!!!



The Showcase will be hosted by Annette Bradley, from Leeds City Council and Maggie Hurd, from Ed Support

Tom Riordan, Chief Executive, Leeds City Council

Julian Stanley, Chief Executive, Ed Support
