IPPN Irish Primary Principals' Network, the professional body for Irish primary school leaders

New research reveals principals face increasing stress and burnout

Growing job complexity and lack of support means sheer quantity of work is the greatest source of stress. IPPN and NAPD commissioned a longitudinal study on Irish Principals & Deputy Principals’ Occupational Health, Safety & Wellbeing.  It is being conducted in response to concerns that the increasing complexity and workload demands of school leadership roles are impacting on the health and wellbeing of Irish school leaders.

The 2015 health & wellbeing survey is now open for all principals and deputy principals.
