Staff Well-Being


Happy and healthy children do better in school and they need happy and healthy staff to help them thrive.


Staff well-being at St Matthew's is a vitally important aspect of the whole school approach.


There are many initiatives the school uses to help maintain a good work-life balance:


  • Regular car valets organised for staff.
  • Pilates lessons are held for staff before school once a week with a qualified Pilates teacher.
  • When possible, meetings are arranged during the school day rather than after school.
  • Food is provided for staff during any training day or twilight meetings.
  • The school accesses a counselling service to help support anyone who needs any additional emotional support.
  • We have a Safeguarding Team that meet regularly to discuss and reflect on our well-being practices.
