At the School Workforce Health & Wellbeing Programme we believe in preventive action and health promotion may be more effective than trying to find a cure.

We want to help schools to discover what circumstances have the potential to impact staff, increase awareness around a range of health topics through health promotion, resources and training as well as provide advice and guidance on the support that is available locally across Cornwall.

We are here to support the entire school workforce from caretakers and cleaners to lunchtime supervisors, teachers, NQTs, governors and heads. Official workload figures published last month showed that heads were working an average of 63 hours per week; a ship is only as strong as its captain so were are here to support everyone.

Your school is a community and our project can be tailored to suit that community - we are here to help you apply effective promotion and support within Staff Health and Wellbeing.


Headteacher Mentors .   Self Help Resources

Headteacher Mentors

The Wellbeing of the Head Teacher in any school or academy has a significant impact on the performance and wellbeing of the rest of the school.

To enhance the support systems that the Council and Head Teacher Groups (CAPH, CASH, NAHT, ASCL, etc) have in place we have developed a training program for volunteer Head Teachers to become Wellbeing Mentors for their peers.

The purpose of the Wellbeing Mentors will be to offer confidential personal support to any Head Teacher who needs it.

If you have any queries about this scheme – please contact the Council’s Health, Safety and Wellbeing Services Team on Tel: 01872 323138.

Alternatively you can contact your CAPH, CASH, NAHT or ASCL representative.
