    Last 2 days to fill it in , will it help I doubt it who knows.


    Emerging findings so far
    • 28% of respondents report low well-being at work, 26% medium, 35% high and 11% report very high well-being at work.
    • 31% of teachers report low well-being at work compared with 18% for senior leaders.
    • 25% of all respondents have been absent from work due to health problems caused or made worse by work, excluding accidents.
    • 76% of teachers report that their job impacts negatively on their mental health and 60% report that it impacts negatively on their physical health.
    • 62% of all respondents believe that teaching is not valued by society.
    • The top three factors that affect respondents’ well-being positively at work are children/pupils, colleagues and the support they receive from them.
    • In contrast, the most frequently mentioned factors that negatively influence occupational well-being are behaviour (both pupils’ challenging behaviour and inconsistent behaviour management by colleagues), workload and marking

    Ofsted will conclude what they are told to conclude from it. Anything that "needs improvement" will be blamed on teachers or ignored.

    Ofsted - Wellbeing - pfft!

    Of course.
    Here is a very good example, I quote

    "The top three factors that affect respondents’ well-being positively at work are children/pupils, colleagues and the support they receive from them."

    EVIDENCE that we need more student voice, peer observation, and support plans.

    Same, what kind of rubbish is that? I entered one close just to get it going but then realised the questions get very personal about the school so backed out and shut it down.

    Typical of this awful organisation.

    Is this going to be yet another survey where the results are completely ignored?

    Maybe it is only Outstanding schools listed!

    maybe if thousands of teachers gate crashed the survey and told ofsted what the reality of teaching in the uk is, they wouldn't be able to ignore it.

    If someone put in a freedom of information request, they would have to admit to the results.

    Our school pays lip service to wellbeing. In the same day as sending us an email explaining all they were doing for our wellbeing (things that are normal practice in most schools such as staff not having a break duty every day), 2 members of SLT sent us requests to complete x task by the end of the next day. Surprise tasks with short deadlines to meet other people's PM targets grate on me!

    Our SLT sit and congratulate themselves but they haven't got a clue. Not one of them still teaches a class full time so they have no idea how the policies they introduce impact on people planning for 5 days compared to 2. Ivory towers indeed.

    I saw a link to the survey on Twitter and it said that teachers had been selected for the survey. So perhaps the schools in the list were those of the selected teachers?
