Staff wellbeing is a key priority at Denefield and we strive to foster a better work/life balance for our staff through a number of initiatives, including a cycle to work scheme and annual flu vaccinations. In addition, each training day ends with a wellbeing activity.  We know that happy teachers make for happy classrooms.
