Flexible Working Policy

This policy outlines the process of applications for flexible working by employees of the Wessex Learning Trust. The Trust recognises that a better work-life balance can improve employee motivation, performance and productivity, and reduce stress. Therefore the organisation wants to support its employees achieve a better balance between work and their other priorities, such as caring responsibilities, leisure activities, further learning and other interests. The Trust is committed to agreeing any flexible working arrangements, provided that the needs and objectives of both the organisation and the employee can be met.

It is the Wessex Learning Trust's policy to encourage open discussion with employees. An employee that thinks they may benefit from flexible working is encouraged to contact their Headteacher to arrange an informal discussion to talk about the options. In the case of a Headteacher or member of staff employed centrally this should be the Chief Executive Officer.
