Essentials for School Staff


The development day provides a thorough introduction to resilience and why it should become the backbone of a school’s ethos. Staff from all areas of the school, whether teaching or support, are introduced to the foundational resilience skill and its importance in creating a thriving school environment amongst staff and pupils alike. They gain a better understanding of their own resilience, creating a more informed outlook and approach to situations, and how they can transfer this knowledge to engage with and support their pupils and colleagues.

“The day has made me think I need to change how I think about situations by empathising more and paying more attention to how I use praise.”
