Introduction

Since the Edurio Staff Experience and Wellbeing survey launched in the 2018/2019 academic year, we’ve collected over 110,000 school staff responses. During that time, we observed how the proportion of staff considering resigning decreased during the years most heavily impacted by Covid-19 and then increased to levels higher than before the pandemic.

As this trend can also be seen in the Department for Education’s school workplace census, in this new report, we use our data to look at retention through the lens of the broader staff experience to provide insights for school and trust leaders whose work directly impacts staff wellbeing, recruitment and retention.

With almost 1 in 2 teachers (49%) in England considering resignation, school staff retention is an issue that should be at the forefront of every school or trust leader's mind. The Staff Retention by Role Report will help you explore this issue in great depth and highlight the areas where improvement is needed most.

With the risk of resignation differing significantly between roles, we review who is most at risk of resigning, and review the elements of the staff experience with the strongest relationship with resignation.

The proportion of staff considering resigning dropped during the heavily-disrupted academic years of 2019/20 and 2020/21, but has since increased to levels higher than before the pandemic.
