Greensand INSET on Mental Health & Wellbeing on Friday 14th February 2020
The first all staff Greensand Inset Day took place on Friday 14th February 2020 with a focus on Mental Health & Wellbeing. The aim of the event was to bring all Greensand members of staff together and teach them strategies for helping to manage their mental health & wellbeing.
Following a delicious breakfast, over 350 staff filled the hall of Reigate School for two sessions by keynote speaker, Steve Head. Through the sessions, Steve taught strategies for helping staff to manage their own mental health and wellbeing by increasing their understanding of potential pressures and focusing on techniques to increase resilience and stay calm. Steve was inspirational and extremely funny and his own personal experiences and ideas resonated with the audience.
Staff feedback from the event was extremely positive and ideas from the day have been put into practice in some form at all schools across the Trust with Glimpse of Brilliance boards and even a Glimpse of Brilliance baton! The children at our schools are also enjoying new activities in the classroom inspired by the day which will help increase their own personal resilience.
