Headteacher Wellbeing

  Your headteacher is busy looking after everyone else’s wellbeing – staff and students, often at the expense of their own.  Governing bodies may wish to consider how you can support your headteacher in terms of work-life balance, new models of leadership, leadership time, career coaching and professional development opportunities for experience beyond your school.
