The success of our schools is intrinsically linked to the engagement, performance and wellbeing of our staff in our schools. The New Zealand Primary School Principals’ Occupational Health and Wellbeing Survey puts the spotlight on the increasing stress and duress our school leaders are experiencing on a daily basis. In parallel, numerous studies demonstrate that unacceptable stress levels are affecting teachers and support staff at all levels. In addition to recognising the implications of this trend for the health and wellbeing of those working in education, it also raises important concerns about the impact on our classrooms and learning environments.

The Wellbeing Toolkit aims to bring staff together within a collaborative and supportive framework to explore what are often sensitive topics and overcome some of the challenges associated with operating in the contemporary school environment.
