BSN News & Jobs - The Future of Wellbeing in School

The British School in The Netherlands - HR

There are some interesting discussions going on worldwide about the longer-term impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the future of education. As restrictions begin to ease, will we see the same routines gradually re-establish themselves or will there be fundamental differences? One aspect brought to forefront by this health crisis is student wellbeing…will that recede into the background again once the danger has passed? Was there sufficient attention to pastoral needs in schools before the crisis in the first place? Will we retain the sense of community and togetherness that has gotten us through the crisis so far? Lots of questions, and the answers may yet have to wait. 
Wellbeing was already a top priority for BSN even before remote schooling began, and we are fortunate to have experts and passionate advocates for this subject among our staff. Since our campuses closed, we’ve seen that some of the ‘Healthy Minds’ strategies our Junior schools adopted in class continue to be applied independently by students at home, which is very encouraging. Our staff are also visibly and consciously checking in with each other remotely. We are forming these habits, and the thing about habits is they tend to endure.

A note on Recruitment:
It may occur that there will be some delay to our recruitment processes. All our recruitment procedures will continue as usual, except for live panel-interviews. All live meetings will be cancelled or postponed, as we do not wish to put any unnecessary pressure on applicants to travel or expose themselves or others. In order to conclude recruitment processes, some vacancy holders may decide to proceed to final interview via video interviews, relevant candidates will be notified.
