In the new normal, schools face the greatest changes to the educational system in modern times.

This is an atypical year in which we have to adjust our infrastructure, blend face-to-face and online teaching, guarantee the curriculum, obtain measurable outcomes, support families and take care of teachers’ wellbeing.  It is a challenge for all of us who work in the educational sector. We have to re-think schools attracting the best minds, best practices and best ideas.

In this context the second edition of the RE.SCHOOL online forum took place on the 28th of October, where Fidelma Murphy, Director of Education Cognita Spain, participated among other speakers. Her intervention focused on the importance of wellbeing and how Cognita Schools have implemented the role of the Group Director of Wellbeing to drive focus on this key strategic priority and ensure wellbeing is a unified priority across the group. A key position that leads the tracking and evaluating of student, staff and school wellbeing and is sector leading in producing wellbeing resources & initiatives for our schools & their communities.

The result of this commitment is the already consolidated Global Be Well Day implemented in all Cognita schools, among many other initiatives that are based on our Be Well Charter.
