Padstow School is a single form entry Primary School

What we do:

Our job is to provide high quality teaching and learning opportunities for the children at our school. We aim to do this in a happy and caring environment for all who enter our school. Primary School is situated at the top of the coastal town of Padstow. There are currently 35 staff and 164 children at the school.The school predominately serves the children of the town along with the areas of Trevone and Rumford. We have a small management team led by the Headteacher Mr Phillip Banks and his deputy Mr Simon Hill. There are 2 other male members of staff at the school and the rest are female. We all work in a light spacious and fairly modern building.

Why we became a healthy workplace:

We became a Healthy workplace,becoming involved in a pilot scheme run by the Aspire Academy to ensure Heath Champions were trained and given a pivitol role in the life of the school.  At Padstow School we strive for every child to recognise, develop and celebrate each others contribution to school life. In order to achieve these high expectations for our children, we know this must apply to our staff and their well being and happiness at work. The Healthy workplace award gave us a clear guideline and structure to work towards this and is a way of celebrating our current successes.

"Having the new Health Champion Role at school has increased opportunities for health issues to be on the agenda. It has made me feel more valued as a member of staff and was one of the reasons I put myself forward to be trained as our 2nd Health Champion" Alison Walker - Reception Class Teacher.

“I think the range of added extras Coastline offers its employees, from corporate gym memberships, to flu jabs, to confidential counselling services, is fantastic. If I didn’t already work here, I’d want to!” – Cheryl Houghton, Communications Advisor
