Teachers feel strain


NEARLY four in five teachers feel their job has adversely affected their mental health during the pandemic, a survey has suggested.

More than one in four (27%) teachers whose jobs have had a negative impact on their health over the past year have seen a medical profession­al about the issues, the poll found.

Ministers must recognise that teacher wellbeing needs to be addressed, the NASUWT union said.
