Empowering Staff Well-being: Minimising Absences through Supportive Measures
1. High Stress and Workload
School staff, including teachers and administrators, often face demanding workloads and high-stress environments. They are responsible for the education and well-being of students. Including managing classrooms, curriculum development, assessments, and dealing with challenging behavior. These all can take a toll on mental health.
2. Emotional Impact
In addition, school staff may encounter emotionally taxing situations daily. This includes dealing with students facing personal difficulties, trauma, or challenging family situations. These emotional experiences can accumulate over time, leading to burnout, compassion fatigue, or vicarious trauma.
3. Challenging Student Behavior
When experiencing emotional fatigue, dealing with disruptive or difficult student behavior can be even more draining and emotionally challenging. School staff may feel overwhelmed or ill-equipped to manage such situations effectively, impacting their mental well-being.
4. Limited Resources
Equally important, educational institutions may face resource constraints, which can add additional pressure to school staff. Limited resources for mental health support and professional development opportunities can exacerbate stress. This in turn leads to a reduced access to much-needed self-care and coping mechanisms.
5. Lack of Work-Life Balance
Finally, maintaining a healthy work-life balance can be challenging for school staff due to the demands of the job. Long working hours, lesson planning, grading, and extracurricular responsibilities can leave little time for personal relaxation and self-care. In doing so, leading to mental health issues if not adequately addressed.
Providing mental health support for school staff is crucial to help them cope with the challenges of their profession, improve overall job satisfaction, and ensure the well-being of the entire school community.

‘KRS have supported PE development and CPD at Reignhead this year and will continue to do so next year.
KRS staff are experienced coaches who have worked with pupils, teachers and teaching assistants across all key stages. They have a very good understanding of the National Curriculum and have successfully followed (and made adaptations where necessary) to the school’s own PE curriculum. The coaches have formed very good working relationships with staff; currently working alongside our HLTAs – they observe and learn new techniques which they are then able to replicate in other PE lessons that they deliver. This has proven to be a very effective method of CPD and has been positively received by staff. We have extended this model to other teaching staff across school who expressed some need for CPD in the teaching of PE.
KRS are incredibly flexible and are always so accommodating when the need arises. They have happily been involved in Red Nose Days, World Book Days and Comic Relief – they are just so adaptable!
Always at the heart of KRS is the children…children always come first and this is what makes them such a special organisation of professional coaches.’
