STAFF WELLBEING

We at Poppy Field value the importance of promoting positive staff wellbeing at all times across the school.

The leaders of the school, aim to make the workplace one that maintains and promotes the health, safety and well-being of employees. New developments and improvements to buildings feature prominently on school development plans, as we want to provide an attractive, healthy, safe and supportive working environment for all employees.  

We are aware that the success of any organisation depends to a great extent on the individual performance of each member of staff, and that this is often related to the health and general well-being of the individual.  As a responsible employer, we recognise that our duty of care extends to mental health as well as physical health at work. The school has implemented policies, which both protect its employees and make clear the responsibilities that rest with each member of staff in order to maintain a healthy environment. 

The school aims to create conditions where all staff and students are treated with respect and are not subjected to unfair discrimination in any aspect of school life.
