The average person will spend 90,000 hours at work over their lifetime. Working with children and young people is one of life’s greatest privileges. As educators, or those that enable education to occur, we create futures and take pride in enabling our pupils to lead safe, independent lives. However, the challenges of working in education and the public sector are understood. The academy is committed to supporting the professional wellbeing of staff and recognise that when staff feel professionally valued and supported that this is reflected in their work and interactions with young people.
Professional wellbeing at the academy is underpinned by:
- Regular and effective communication regarding roles and responsibilities.
- A commitment to continuous professional learning which gives staff the knowledge and skills to fulfil their role.
- Inclusive working practices, supported by our commitment to Diversity, Equality and Inclusion.
Together, these practices create a supportive working environment by helping to cultivate relational trust and the sharing of social capital.
