The Charter also includes nine pledges from the Department for Education (DfE) to protect school staff wellbeing, while Ofsted has committed to a further three.
The Education Staff Wellbeing Charter has been co-created with organisations including education unions, schools, and charities Education Support and Mind among others.
The DfE defines wellbeing as: “A state of complete physical and mental health that is characterised by high-quality social relationships.”
Among its commitments, the DfE has pledged to “design-in” wellbeing to its policy-making: “We will integrate wellbeing into DfE’s school workload policy test, where appropriate, considering the impact of policy changes on staff wellbeing.”
It has also pledged to “remove unnecessary burdens, including improving how we collect data”.
