Waingels Staff Wellbeing

Staff well-being is very important to us and is integral in everything we do. As a member of the Waingels College staff, please find below some of the examples of how we show our commitment to staff workload and well-being:

  • A school that lives out it’s values of Kindness, Resilience, Respect and Pride with students, parents, the community and staff
  • All staff tasks and new policies are workload assessed with staff well-being and workload in mind
  • Staff are collaborated with on current and proposed new policies and practices
  • Our feedback policy recognises the need for students to be given direct feedback in a way that does not overburden staff with unnecessary maintenance marking
  • Reporting and data entry is kept to a minimal to avoid unnecessary burden
  • Printing and photocopying facilities available in all staff areas and a dedicated reprographics technician and room
  • Performance Management objectives based on staff development needs 
  • After-school meetings are kept to a minimum with one staff briefing and a maximum of 1 meeting per week. After-school meetings are not scheduled during weeks where there are Parent Consultation Meetings or Open Evenings 
  • A reduced school day for students to allow staff to prepare for Parent Consultation Meetings. These are therefore held in the late afternoon rather than late evenings
  • Our staff absence policy is generous for example with requests to go to our children’s sports days, graduation sand loved ones’ funerals 
  • Breakfast/lunch provided for staff on INSET days
  • Disaggregated INSET days allocated to afternoon twilight sessions across the academic year
  • CPD is available for all staff at all levels including a thriving internal CPD program 
  • Staff appreciation postcards nominated by peers are displayed on our staff appreciation noticeboard
  • Termly staff tea organised by peers
  • Staff celebration events such as our Summer BBQ
  • A well-being team of volunteers meet once a half-term to raise issues and seek solutions; a free lunch is provided. They also organise a once a month social for staff to informally get together
  • Opportunities for staff to organise and attend trips all around the world
  • Half-termly staff appreciation cards distributed as nominated by students
  • Dedicated staff kitchen/informal social space and formal workspaces in all school zones
