Healthy, happy teachers

We believe that healthy, happy teachers and staff create healthy, happy and successful school environments where our children and young people can thrive.

The National Foundation for Educational Research found that teachers are more likely to suffer job-related stress than other professionals, with one in five teachers reporting to feel tense about their job all or most of the time (compared with one in eight in similar professions).
