All schools who have completed their 2019-20 self-assessment and action plans are eligible for two free places. One place must be taken by the EHMW lead and the other place can be for a member of staff taking lead on staff wellbeing or with an invested interest.

They will be sharing their research and ideas from their new book: Teacher Wellbeing & Self-Care. There will also be case studies and practice shared from across the borough, networking opportunities with services who can support schools with staff wellbeing and time for attendees to plan how to take learning from the day back into their settings.
