Making welleing a number one priority

About Majella

I’m a professional coach accredited with the ICF, and have over ten years’ experience as a Well-being Leader in education.

When my work commitments began to take precedence over other more important areas of my life, I learnt the hard way what happens to your health and wellbeing when you prioritise work over your life.

I experienced exhaustion and burnout after years of working in an environment where stress and fatigue are normalised, accepted and largely overlooked by employers.

When we focus on the well-being of learners in isolation it dilutes the message that well-being really matters – and offers them a poor role model. Through using the Well 2 Shine™ 5 pillar Framework for Schools, I want to make Well-being a number one priority in schools for ALL members of the school community, not just the learners.

Why work with me?

A whole-school approach to wellbeing

The Well 2 Shine Schools™ Framework will enable School Leaders to create strong systems that cater for all aspects of Well-being.

I will work with you to:

  • Support you in looking at your setting holistically and offering a whole-school community approach for improving Well-being for all: learners, teachers, parents, support staff and school leaders.
  • Ensure Well-being is an Area of Learning in its own right; we will look at the opportunities for Well-being learning and reflection within daily routines, across the curriculum and throughout all teaching and learning.

As well as investing in the Well-being of your learners, investing in the Well-being of your teaching staff, parents and school leaders will result in better teaching, better learning, better support for learning at home and better leadership.

INCLUSION Consultancy, Training and Coaching

(for ALN, Equality and Equity)

I offer bespoke Consultancy for schools to improve ALN provision and whole-school strategies and systems around Inclusion.

I have supported several schools to make the changes they needed in order to successfully comply with new ALN Reform Bill in Wales and totally transform the way Inclusion is experienced and ALN is delivered in their schools.

I can support you to put comprehensive whole-school systems in place for excellent ALN provision and effective monitoring of Inclusion. I also offer training and consultancy in programmes I developed to improve the way Inclusion is experienced and delivered in schools:

Coach to Strengths Pupil-centred Coaching is the perfect compliment to person-centred planning approaches to support the needs of learners with ALN.  

Coach to Reach Pupil-centred Coaching to Raise Aspirations (negate the impact of disadvantage on attainment) can create the foundations of positive, secure powerful relationships for learning between members of your staff and individual learners who are most in need of their support.  

Bespoke Training and Coaching packages can be provided upon initial consultation.

Well-being in schools requires strong systems in place

“Monitoring and measuring Well-being in schools requires strong systems in place to capture accurately both the snapshot of individual’s well-being at any given point in time, but also to measure the impact of the delivery of Well-being Strategies over the course of a longer period of time.”
