Season 4 Teacher Wellbeing Podcast Show Notes

In this episode I share with you some of the results of the Self-Care for Teachers Annual Survey that I did in June 2018. The report is still forthcoming, but today I thought I would share with you a bit of an overview and what I’ve got so far.

In the survey, I asked a whole bunch of questions, and I don’t go through all of them here, but I do cover a bit about physical and mental health, workload, wellbeing practices and what people said was happening in terms of support for staff wellbeing in their schools.

Stay tuned for the final report, once I’ve finished sifting through all the free-form answers. There’s a lot to do and I want to do it properly, so I appreciate all your patience.
