Being an educational professional is extremely rewarding and meaningful work. However, it can be emotionally demanding & stressful at times which can contribute to feelings of burnout.

During the summer holidays, we are encouraging all staff to prioritise self-care by trying new or well-known strategies and activities that support their wellbeing. 

The resources include a staff toolkit which features top tips for maximising self-care over the holidays, as well as a poster that can be shared in the staff room or disseminated online to colleagues.

If you are taking up any new strategies to support your mental health, or engaging in activities that already help, we would love to hear from you on social media using the hashtag #SelfCareSummer.
