We take staff wellbeing very seriously in the Bridge. Teaching and supporting learners is very rewarding but can be stressful and demanding at times and the long autumn term is challenging.
We have well-being activities every half term and decided to use a whole INSET day to devote to staff wellbeing with activities around team building, working with other staff you wouldn’t normally spend time with and participating in things quite out of our comfort zones!
After a delicious breakfast served by Carol and Amanda we split into two groups with half of us joining a fab Christmas card craft workshop with Daisy from Bottles and Brushes and the other half of us relaxing in a professional yoga class with Kelvin. We swapped after a coffee break, all the comments were positive and the smiling faces were a pleasure to see!
We are also completing a staff survey on wellbeing this week and will review the outcomes to plan for next term!
