Wellbeing and pastoral support are a key priority for our work with schools and particularly with school leaders as they respond to the challenges of their role.
The Diocesan Schools Advisers provide pastoral support and a listening ear for school staff. The well-established Performance, Resilience and Support Programme (PRS) provides high-quality continuing professional development opportunities which promote wellbeing and pastoral support. We also offer specific resources and assistance for bereavement in school and offer an accredited mediation service.
This is complemented by the Headteacher Networks and HeadSpace day conferences. Other opportunities to promote wellbeing are found in headteacher induction, headteacher appraisal and our annual service for heads and governors.
