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:
briefings with cake
a summer barbeque
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.
