Staff Wellbeing

Wellbeing at Turner Schools

At Turner Schools, we believe our people are our greatest asset and that a happy and healthy workforce is the key to achieving our vision of transforming children’s futures, empowering families and strengthening communities. Our primary focus this year has been on creating a culture where staff feel supported, valued and wellbeing is firmly on the agenda across the Trust.

Our Wellbeing Provision

We have developed our wellbeing provision to offer a comprehensive range

of wellbeing support to our staff through the following:

  • Wellbeing & Workload charter which pledges our commitment to reducing workload and supporting wellbeing

  • Wellbeing on the Trust Agenda - Annual People Plan

  • Private healthcare through Benenden which gives staff access to medical and mental health support as well as employee assistance

  • Mental Health First Aiders (wellbeing champions) across the Trust to provide mental health support

  • Wellbeing focus groups/Employee voice

  • Staff survey which is run twice a year to gain valuable feedback from our staff

  • Occupational Health & Counselling provision

  • Professional supervision for staff who are dealing with our most challenging safeguarding issues

  • Social committee - creating a sense of family and community across the Schools

How we monitor staff wellbeing

Staff feedback is incredibly important to us, we hold a bi-annual staff survey to capture the picture of employee engagement across the Trust. The results of our staff survey are used to help shape our approach to wellbeing, based on continually improving our provision. In addition to our survey, we hold regular employee voice groups to ensure we have our finger on the pulse of wellbeing across the Trust.

Workload & Wellbeing Charter

At Turner Schools we use the power & strength of working as a Trust to ensure staff workload and wellbeing are a top priority for us. Our workload and wellbeing charter sets our our committment to staff on how we will acheive a positive and healthy workload across our Trust.
