Setting boundaries: a guide for staff in schools
Learning how to set and keep clear boundaries is an essential part of working in a school. School staff are caring and conscientious, so it can be easy to end up saying yes to every request. But that might not always be what is best for you. You might find yourself feeling stressed, exhausted and over-worked if you don’t have workplace boundaries, and that can impact your mental health.
This PDF guide explains what boundaries are, why you need them, and how you can create your own that you are comfortable with. It will equip you with ways to say no without hurting anyone’s feelings, and offer tips for making sure your work stays at work where it belongs.
