New wellbeing charter aims to protect, promote and enhance wellbeing
Ofsted will ‘review’ its impact on staff wellbeing, and the Government will support the education sector to drive down any workload, as part of a new charter published this May.
The education staff wellbeing charter is ‘a declaration of support for, and set of commitments to, the wellbeing and mental health of everyone working in education’, the Department for Education(DfE) said.
The charter includes 12 commitments from the Department for Education and Ofsted. From the autumn, schools will also be able to sign up to a charter of 11 pledges, on a voluntary basis, aimed at showing a commitment to ‘protect, promote and enhance wellbeing among education staff’.
