sports teamCompany ethos or mission statement:

Our School Values are part of the school logo…

Aspire Believe Create Dazzle

These came from the school’s mission statement…

We value the well being of our school community above all else. By holding true to this value our aim is to develop happy learners.

As a group committed to learning we believe that through a ‘can do’ culture, high aspiration and expectation, we can all reach our potential.

We understand that to face the challenges of the 21st century we need to embrace imagination & creativity and celebrate our achievements.

We acknowledge that it is our responsibility to contribute to the wider community. In this and in everything we do, we include everyone, regardless of differences in race, ability, gender or beliefs.

We had done a lot of work on staff wellbeing, managing workloads and communication. Becoming a healthy workplace seemed a natural progression, focusing more on physical health and wellbeing.

Recent Health & Wellbeing activities on offer:

  • Health checks
  • Staff training on mental health
  • Healthy eating and diet club
  • Pedometer challenge

Plans/ Aims for next year:

  • Support staff in taking regular exercise
  • Back pain workshop
  • Take part in the Beach Games
Valuing staff health and wellbeing has allowed us to transform the school. The result is that our pupils love coming to school, behaviour and attitudes are outstanding and standards are improving year on year.

Top tip! No hiding from work email for employees

Companies need to set clear policies on acceptable use of work email, as well as regarding when to switch off - employees need to know it is OK to let work email that arrived after hours wait until the morning.
