star this property answer text <p>Supporting the teaching profession and reducing unnecessary workload which can lead to stress is an absolute priority for the Department for Education.

It is vital that they have systems in place that identify and tackle the cause of stress in their staff and provide appropriate support for them.

star this property answer text <p>Schools have a 'duty of care' to protect the health, safety and welfare of all their employees. The Stevenson/Farmer Review states that public sector employers should support employee wellbeing. The Department is currently considering evidence about teachers’ wellbeing and will consider what more can usefully be done to support the sector. In the Transforming Children and Young People’s Mental Health green paper the Department set out plans to support schools to put in place designated senior mental health leads.</p><p>The Department is developing a strategy to drive recruitment and boost retention of teachers, working closely with the sector, teaching unions and professional bodies. This strategy will cover a wide range of areas including stripping away unnecessary workload, clarifying the accountability system and providing tailored recruitment support for schools. As part of the strategy, the impact of work-related stress on teacher retention will be considered. In addition, the Workload Reduction Toolkit was published in July 2018 and provides accessible materials, including practical advice, tools and case studies that school leaders, teachers and other staff can use to address workload issues in their school.</p><p> </p>
