How staff morale is boosted at a National Challenge Academy The Crest Girls? Academy in northwest London has been through a period of significant change.
The school has only recently become an Academy, with considerable organisational change for staff and pupils. It is also a National Challenge school, where the pressure is on to raise results. There is constant assessment and evaluation by school leaders as well as external monitoring.
What has been the impact on morale and wellbeing? Staff members explain the drive to improve the school environment; the focus on credit-based training and the channels they use to listen to staff concerns. One major innovation is the staff wellbeing group which meets with the Principal on a monthly basis.
