Workload and Wellbeing


Cost of training session for non subscribing school £145.00


Teachers and leaders need to be able to focus on the most important tasks which impact positively on pupil progress, and in a way that reduces workload as much as possible. Recent research has highlighted that:

  • Unnecessary workload takes teachers and leaders away from their primary role of helping their pupils achieve their goals
  • Working hours for teachers in England are higher than in most other countries, and time is often spent on tasks they believe are not helping their pupils
  • The competency framework for governance states that the board should ‘pay due regard to ensuring that leaders and teachers are able to have a satisfactory work-life balance, including a manageable workload’

This session explores the DfE guidance and our own Mental Health, Stress & Wellbeing Audit Tool to provide information for boards on the importance of addressing workload and the role of the board in supporting this.


By the end of this session governors will be able to:

  • Understand the key workload issues in schools
  • Recognise the role governors have in helping to address the issues
  • Understand the importance of improving wellbeing and work life balance in school
