Taking care of oneself is an important part of staying on top of workloads, but not everyone can find the time or energy to do it.
This programme looks at three ways to help. Fran Brammer is a teacher who suffers severe migraines, often during the school day. She visits Dr Manuela Fontebasso, a GP from The British Association for the Study of Headache (BASH) for some advice.
In Kent, Medway LEA take well-being seriously and this programme visits two schemes they have initiated, a Pilates workshop at Cuxton Community Junior School and a positive touch workshop at Glencoe Junior School, where both teachers and pupils benefit from the schemes.
Jamie Oliver isn't the only chef who knows about healthy school meals: Savoy Hotel-trained David Lucas has been on a mission for the past few years to change what's on offer at mealtimes for pupils and teachers. He acts as a consultant for five schools in and around Luton in his quest to change school dinners for the better. He believes a good diet makes life easier in the classroom, as both teachers and pupils have more energy to concentrate on lessons.
