Biscovey Academy

A primary school for children aged 7-11.

What we do:

We are a Key Stage Two fully inclusive Academy.

Why we became a healthy workplace:

Biscovey Academy is dedicated to creating a meaningful Health and Wellbeing programme and becoming a Healthy Workplace is a vital part of the journey.

Biscovey Academy recognises the absolute importance of having a motivated, valued and dynamic workforce.

We are all responsible for creating an organisation that promotes health and wellbeing strategies.

We believe every individual has a right to: 

Mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing.
Experience personal achievement.

 

Recent health and well being activities:

All staff offered an NHS Health Check

Mindfulness Workshop

Dementia Friends

Line Manager Stress Training

H&W Champions attend network meetings

Staff Incentive Scheme launched

Staff were supported and signposted during bereavement and illness. Interventions in place where required.

Recreational activities included canoeing, laser tag, bowling and football golf.

Success Story:

Following the NHS Health Checks several staff have made lifestyle changes that have had positive impacts.

We know that schools play a vital role in supporting children’s mental health and building their resilience. In order for us, as educators, to be able to successfully deliver this role we must be valued and supported. By fully embracing the whole philosophy behind the Workplace Award and Health and Wellbeing, we aim to give our staff and therefore our pupils, the ability to deal with the complexities of modern life.

“I would like to take this opportunity to praise the work of the Health Promotion Service and the framework in place for the Workplace Health Award, which has significantly changed the focus and the culture of our Company, especially in relation to attitudes toward health and wellbeing and the concept of a healthy workplace being embedded as the norm”

Employee Feedback

"I am lucky to work for an organisation whose management has whole-heartedly supported me throughout the process of obtaining the Healthy Workplace Awards.  The Directors have never said ‘no’ and it is great to know that my employer is interested in everyone’s well-being at work.  Not only have they approved my initiatives but they have also led by example and joined in some of them too.  They have committed, what are for us, scarce resources and agreed more flexible working policies as well as offering support to staff who may struggle with work or with personal problems through solid employment policies and management techniques"- Louise Mallas, YMCA Cornwall
