Education staff wellbeing charter

This charter is a way for schools to demonstrate their commitment to the wellbeing and mental health of everyone working in education.

The education staff wellbeing charter was created by the education sector (including teaching unions, schools, charities, DfE and Ofsted). The charter is a tool for schools and colleges to create, and publicly commit to, their own wellbeing strategies.

Schools are encouraged to sign up to:

  • show staff that you take their wellbeing seriously
  • open a conversation with staff about their wellbeing and mental health
  • create a staff wellbeing strategy
  • create a wellbeing-focused culture
