The wellbeing of school leaders and staff is critical for student success according to Prof Donna Cross who joins The School Bell to discuss her ground-breaking evidence-based report on what promotes and erodes teacher and student wellbeing.
Prof Cross says: "School leader and staff wellbeing is critical to help students reach their full potential. Yet rarely in recent history has school leader and staff mental health and wellbeing been so tested as during the COVID-19 pandemic."
"The pandemic has further exposed the high rates of school leader and staff stress and exhaustion from the intensification of their front-line work supporting the health, development and learning of their students.”
Prof Cross' research offers some practical evidence-based actions and makes specific wellbeing recommendations. After listening to the podcast, you can download and read the full report: School Leaders' and Staff Wellbeing is Critical for Student Success.
