Mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing.

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.

"The healthy workplace toolkit has been an invaluable resource for TRAC. It is helped us review where we are as a company in terms of providing a healthy workplace and clearly identify new measures we can put in place. It is a very robust and easy to use resource that has united the team here in a common goal of improving the health and wellbeing of everyone. The website that support the initiative is easy to use and as lots of very helpful information and case studies. It is really easy to track your progress using the website. We have also benefited greatly from the support and enthusiasm of Rachel and the team in helping us on our journey and were delighted to be awarded silver following our recent assessment." - TRAC Services Ltd
