Bugle School

Bugle School and Piccolo Early Years.

What we do:

Provide education services for primary and nursery children from the ages of 2-11 years. We are a very caring, family orientated school who truly care for the children and staff. 

Why we became a healthy workplace:

We have decided to apply for the healthy workplace award to recognise and celebrate what we already do as well as taking a critical look at how to improve. In September 2016 we were delighted to join the Aspire Academy Trust. The Trust is committed to being a mindful organisation that actively values the health and wellbeing of everyone in it.

 

Recent health and well being activities:

We have recently had 2 health and well being champions trained to support and signpost staff within the setting. This has had an immediate and positive effect on a number of staff. We have also implemented a health and wellbeing board into the staff room as well as a shout out board. 


All staff were given the opportunity to access NHS health assessments on site during the working day. The take up was very high and staff reported that the advice given was informative and useful.


After school yoga sessions commenced in January 2017 and numbers are steadily increasing. Staff have expressed that following attendance at these sessions, they have felt relaxed and have been able to have a good night's sleep, the first in a long time.

Workplace health and wellbeing is paramount in ensuring staff and ultimately children are able to thrive in a healthy and safe working environment.  Training our 2 health and wellbeing champions has had an extremely positive impact on the school. We are excited about improving workplace health at Bugle School.

Dame Carol Black,

"It is fantastic to see Cornwall and Isles of Scilly championing the health and work agenda and I look forward to seeing the Workplace Award act as a catalyst for further change in the county. Good health is good business and I encourage all employers that are serious about the agenda to apply for this confirmation of best practice." Dame Carol Black, National Director for Health and Work.

Ginsters

A reduction in cost of advertising and agency fees attest to the fact fewer people leave the company and that candidates now approach Ginsters direct as they are seen as an employer of choice.  Number of applicants in 2005 = 2481, in 2006 = 3641 and in 2008 = 3764.  Advertising costs reduced from £50,743 in 2005 to £33,805 in 2007 and £18,126 in 2008.
