New Absence & Wellbeing Procedure for Cumbria– Are You Up To Speed?
Time to reflect?
Earlier this year, we helped one school cut its sick absence rate by 90%. Now a new Absence and Wellbeing Procedure marks a radical departure from its predecessors, and presents an even greater challenge for headteachers wanting to reduce absence. So, what does the change mean for you, and how can we help?

This school achieved a 50% decrease in staff absence – a case study
Your personal productivity isn’t something that starts at the school gates. There is no ‘on’ switch to flick to put you in the right mindset for the day. Instead, productivity starts with how you sleep, how you wake and how you prepare your body and mind for the day ahead.
