James Hilton

Writing from his experience as a primary school head teacher, Hilton addresses the real issues that can cause stress in a school’s working life, including dealing with difficult parents, challenging staff situations, as well as the lead up to Ofsted inspections.

He suggests strategies for managing these stressful moments and offers useful activities to try in school. He offers tips on to start conversations with staff about stress and its effective management. He also suggests how school leaders can recognize stress in themselves, and how to overcome it.
