Information about the impact of racism on school staff, and guidance for schools on how to foster a safe and supportive environment.
Some schools already have excellent initiatives in place to support their staff’s mental health and wellbeing, making it a whole-school priority. Schools are becoming aware that in order to properly support the wellbeing of students, the wellbeing of staff must be treated with equal importance.
This resource helps schools specifically think about supporting the mental health and wellbeing of staff from racially minoritised groups.
It covers topics that may impact the mental health of staff from these groups, including the ‘hidden workload’ and the diversity of the teaching profession.
The resource then shares advice for schools on action to take, and includes a case study from Rahi Popat, a teacher in Leicester.
