I hadn't noticed the bit about staff, though I would consider a similar
approach to the one for students.

I don't like the sound of that last sentence - what exactly are you
trying to achieve by getting your staff blogging? If you want to use
blogs as a genuine and successful reflection tool, then I don't think an
approach like this will get there. If you prevent staff from blogging
critically about the school with their name attached, they will just do
the same under a pseudonym.
