At Highfield we pride ourselves on promoting wellbeing for all of our school community including children, staff, governors and families.
Staff Wellbeing Group - At Highfield our staff wellbeing is a priority. Our wellbeing lead is Jannice Simpson, who is happy to support your needs. We also have two trained Mental Health First Aiders Ruth Coleman and Vanessa Bally who are happy to assist with any guidance.
Highfield has implemented The Education Staff Wellbeing Charter. The charter sets out commitments from the DfE, Ofsted and employers working in education on actions to protect and promote the wellbeing of education staff. Please click here to have a read of the charter.
Action for Happiness - Please see our Action for Happiness calendar. Self-care isn't selfish, it's essential.
Employee Assist Programme
All Staff have access to an Employee Assist Programme - Your employee assistance programme is free, confidential service which can help you with any personal, work or family issues you face. Available any time, any day, by phone or online, the service provides information, helpful resources and counselling on any issues that matter to you. This is a service we pay for at Highfield for our staff members, so please take advantage of this service if you feel you need to.
