Leaders invest heavily in their staff, for example they provide opportunities for staff to take care of both their physical and mental health.  Staff feel valued and like working at the school.  They comment favourably on Leaders’ attempts to reduce unnecessary workload, enable flexible working and respond positively to reasonable requests for compassionate or other leave.”
