A new £760,000 mental health support scheme has been launched for school leaders, to be delivered by the charity Education Support from this autumn until March 2023. The programme will provide one-to-one counselling and peer support to around 2,000 school leaders, helping those at deputy head level and above with their mental wellbeing.

The free support offers headteachers, deputy heads, MAT CEOs and MAT deputy CEOs:

  • Facilitated online peer support where leaders can safely reflect with other school leaders
  • Individual telephone support for leaders to explore how they are doing and get emotional support 
School leaders can apply now.
