In the second in the series, Gen Hall, our SoEd Belonging Lead, focuses on tips for strengthening staff belonging as we work remotely.

  1. Although the term ‘social distancing’ is being used, this can be re-framed by thinking of it as ‘physical distancing’ combined with ‘social connectedness’. To enable this, organise a weekly social ‘get together’ meeting on Teams with a small group of colleagues, BYO food and drinks! Don’t forget our Wednesday 12:30 school lunch. Urban School are continuing their Tuesday lunchtime quiz routine.
  2. During these sessions, share ideas about what is working well online and the challenges you’re facing.
  3. Be kind to yourself during this stressful time. Try and factor in some time each day to step away from your devices and spend some time outside.
