TES wellbeing survey: Less than two in five school staff feel confident performing their roles

Confidence among school staff to perform their roles has sharply dropped during the pandemic, according to the TES wellbeing report 2022. Less than two in five (38%) of school staff feel confident performing their roles, compared to 79% in 2020. The report, published last Tuesday, highlights the ongoing impact of the pandemic on the wellbeing of school staff and found that 67% of staff said their workload is not manageable, three times higher than in 2020.

The survey also indicated ongoing challenges around communication and engagement in schools. Almost half of school staff said they don’t have a voice about how things go at their school and less than 40% report their school had a vision for the future.
