Eyres Monsell Primary School headteacher Kerry Hill contributed a piece to the latest edition of Wellbeing in International Schools Magazine.

Titled Building teacher self-efficacy to support mental wellbeing, Hill utilised her Masters in Leadership of School Mental Health by exploring how teachers can manage the stressful nature of the job.

Announcing her contribution on LinkedIn, Hill wrote: "Very proud to have contributed to the Wellbeing in International Schools Magazine Issue, sharing a case study on developing teacher self efficacy through our Spotlight programme.

"Great to see my Masters dissertation being shared globally. Cannot wait to see how our new pupil self efficacy and character programme, developed from this project, impacts this year."

Hill, who was a TES Headteacher of the Year finalist in 2019, helped Eyres Monsell achieve its first "good" Ofsted grade in 2018, while also becoming the first primary school to earn the Princess Royal Training Award.

Having worked in education for more than 20 years, first becoming a headteacher in 2011, she has helped turn attainment at the school around too, using her experience and studies into mental health and wellbeing to great effect.

"At the start of my tenure, our pupils were achieving well below national standards. Children enter our school with many barriers to learning," she wrote in a recent edition of The Parliamentary Review.

"These can be further compounded by adverse childhood experiences and mental health needs. We began to consider the needs of our pupils more carefully and the barriers that they face in order to support accelerated academic progress. We carefully considered whether we were providing what our pupils needed and whether our children could be more successful if learning was organised in a different way."
