Staff Wellbeing Champion Forum

The Consortium Trust values our staff and believes that there is a strong correlation between happy supported employees and outstanding school practice.  In addition to our statutory duties as an ethical employer, the Trust launched our Wellbeing Champions network in July 2017. Each school and establishment is entitled to send a representative to our termly meetings that will be held at CMAT central in Halesworth.  

Who:  The Wellbeing Champion can be any member of staff, other than an immediate school leader.  For schools that are working within a partnership, each member school is entitled to send a representative.  Trust central staff and the ESCape Holiday School will also be entitled to representation.  
Why: The network will be used as a constructive staff forum that will in turn improve the well-being and working practices of all colleagues – it is a place to share and develop solutions.

Terms of reference

To review and discuss the termly well-being audits;
