What the school offers its staff

  • Encourage a climate of connecting with people. At The Hollins we encourage collaboratively working and sharing our moments with each other, both within the school and further afield in the hope that both professionally and personally all our staff feel less isolated and more connected. We are human beings first and foremost and, as such, must look after and care for our well-being.
  • Looking after our mental health. We have staff who are trained mental health first aiders who are ready, willing and able to support.
  • Quality staff professional development. We value staff development above all else and this engenders a sense of confidence and motivation for staff. We treat our staff like the professionals they are by engaging in the Disciplined Inquiry approach to appraisal and development, which gives staff the responsibility to consider their own individual needs in order to continue to develop and improve.
  • Measure and respond to staff voice. Our thrice-yearly staff questionnaires allow staff the opportunity to let us know how they are coping with the demands of work, along with how they are coping generally. However, leadership doors are always open for continual conversations around this.
  • Driving down unnecessary workload. We strive to ensure that we support the DfE Workload Reduction with suggestions like ensuring that our calendar reflects generous department and CPD opportunities, not submitting regular lesson plans, no expectations that all staff will mark in a specified manner, and only collecting data that is purposeful and used multiple times.
  • Quality behaviour systems in place. Our behaviour system is designed to support both pupils and staff to ensure consistency and support at all times. Our school believes that the certainty of a sanction and subsequent restorative conversations are extremely important for the smooth running of the school
