Resilience and
wellbeing in schools

Supporting resilience and wellbeing of school staff

Everyone knows that resilience and wellbeing are important. You probably emphasise this to your students already. Yet it can be stressful working in schools. The Phil Riley Principal Wellbeing report has shown a ‘very large’ difference between the levels of burnout and stress amongst school leaders compared to the general population. Teacher burnout is also a concern. So how can we, as educators, nurture our own personal resilience and wellbeing?

Mindsets for resilience and wellbeing

It’s not realistic to avoid stresses but you can learn how to manage your state and respond more positively. You can be mindful in choosing your response, be agile and adaptable in responding to change and know how to make changes in your life to improve your own wellbeing and satisfaction. Being clear on your own core values can also bring a renewed sense of purpose to your work.
