Wellbeing working party

A voluntary group of staff from all teams at Meadow High School identified that they wanted greater involvement in decision making processes, so working parties were set up.

These include a wellbeing working party which organises regular events for staff (usually seasonal), including:

  • pancake breakfasts

  • briefings with cake

  • a summer barbeque

  • free Pilates

  • reduced price pamper evenings

  • Friday staff wellbeing box: a name is drawn from a box and that staff member chooses a small ‘thank you’ gift, and has a fun picture taken which is shared with staff

  • recognition awards: staff note colleagues who are going above and beyond, and at the end of the year there is a staff recognition awards evening, with bronze, silver, gold and platinum awards

  • ‘thank you’ treats for support staff on National Teaching Assistants’ Day

  • staff can have online shopping purchases delivered to the school office

Results of the school’s biannual work-life balance survey fed in to the development of the wellbeing working party. The PTA donated money to fund the various ideas.
