The people in a school community include the school staff, students, parents and allied professionals. All members of a school community impact on the social context in terms of their values, attitude, skills and expressed behaviours. Attention paid to supporting autonomy, relatedness and competency can help all help members of the school community thrive (as per Deci and Ryan Self-Determination Theory).

For example, socially competent staff with manageble levels of stress, and high levels of wellbeing will model positive behaviour to the entire class.

Supporting staff wellbeing needs to become a priority in our schools and colleges.
