Staff wellbeing


Creating a culture of positive staff wellbeing

Supporting staff wellbeing remains a priority for schools. Our online training course, Supporting Staff Wellbeing in Schools, will provide you and your staff with information, guidance and support to look after your own wellbeing and that of your colleagues.


Improving staff wellbeing during Covid-19

Give your staff a voice and let them share their worries with you through our staff wellbeing survey software. With Staff Pulse you can send regular anonymous surveys to help you to gather feedback on how staff are feeling and get insight into their concerns.

Catch up


Measure, track and improve literacy in your school

With the current focus on catch-up, identifying trends and gaps in pupil literacy levels has never been more crucial. Our software can help you to do so without increasing teachers’ workload.
