Governors’ thoughts on well-being and workload

Between December 2021 and January 2022, we canvassed the members of Better Governor for their opinions on a range of hot topics. The results highlighted how concerned school governors were with workload issues and the well-being of staff in their schools, with 90% regarding it as a significant issue..

89% believe well-being should be a recurring item on the agenda at Governing Body meetings and 61% felt that 'Thank you' messages and special treats such as sweets and cakes have a positive impact.  But only 24% say an employee assistance programme would be welcomed.
