OUR MISSION:
TRANSFORM THE WELLBEING OF TEACHERS, SCHOOL LEADERS AND SCHOOL STAFF

At Pursuit, we passionately believe that all school staff have the right to feel good and function well which will, in turn, have a positive knock-on effect on children’s wellbeing and learning.

Good staff wellbeing can have a number of benefits for schools, including:

  • Staff are more able to manage anxiety and stress with improved coping strategies;
  • Staff feeling valued, supported and invested in;
  • Leading to reduced sickness absences (both short term and long term);
  • Increased productivity and engagement of staff members;
  • Improved retention, due to increased job satisfaction; and
  • Positive impact on pupils, including improved educational outcomes, as both staff and children are better able to engage with their work

“The 5-step action plan programme was easy to follow and fit into my busy schedule. 

I was able to use the tools and suggestions from day one and my health and well-being have improved.”

Lorna Hamilton, Education Director, The Primary First Trust

5-STEP WELLBEING ACTION PLAN

This 5-step toolkit is based on scientific research and was created by Maria Brosnan, a wellbeing expert with over 30 years’ experience.

The training programme comprises 35 bite-sized lessons, delivered over a period of 30 days, all geared towards measurably improving your mental, emotional and physical health.

It’s developed specifically for teachers, supports better relationships with colleagues and helps you cope better with uncertainty and change.

Pursuit is built on 5 wellbeing principles:

Small everyday choices matter

Small actions lead to significant improvements, quickly. Like taking a short walk rather than scrolling on your phone or eating an apple rather than automatically reaching for chocolate.

Wellbeing requires action


Your wellbeing requires on-going daily attention. By setting ‘low bar next action steps’ you can easily achieve them and build positive momentum in a healthy direction.

Your wellbeing is your responsibility

No-one else knows how you’re feeling or can take the action needed to help you feel better. The more you own your wellbeing, with compassion for yourself, the better you’ll feel.

Wellbeing is a journey

Nurturing it means taking steps in the right direction.  Progress is easier when you acknowledge where you are, know where you’d like to be, and tackle obstacles in your path.

Your wellbeing affects others

We are social creatures with ‘mirror neurons’ in our brains which send and receive signals.  When you’re well, you positively impact those around you – but the reverse is also true.

“Back at school now, you will be pleased to know that I am holding firmly onto your training and keeping my wellbeing see-saw balanced.

A huge thank you once again for a supportive course – a lift raft – to keep me afloat.

Jo Denny. Year 3 Leader, Manor Leas Junior School
