Description

Headteacher Wellbeing Conference, Leeds

Attend our Headteacher Wellbeing Conference to hear from headteachers who have been on a wellbeing journey not only for themselves but their staff and schools helping to:

  • improve retention rates

  • reduce absenteeism

  • boost staff and pupil wellbeing

These heads have transformed how they manage their staff AND look after their own wellbeing.

Our 2017 Health Survey found that 76% of school and college leaders surveyed said they had experienced psychological, physical or behavioural symptoms because of work*. Which is why addressing headteacher wellbeing issues are so critical.

This conference is hosted by Maggie Hurd, from Ed Support and Annette Bradley, from Leeds City Council who have significantly invested in services to support the wellbeing of their headteachers through the Headspace programme of peer-to-peer support.
