Sandy Hill Academy

We are a primary school which is part of a Multi Academy Trust.

What we do:

We are responsible for caring and teaching children from 3 years to 11 years old.

Why we became a healthy workplace:

Aspire Academy Trust is committed to being a mindful organisation that actively values the health and wellbeing of everyone in it. As part of the trust our school has recruited two health and wellbeing champions. Following this we then embarked on the Healthy Workplace Award Programme.

Recent health and well being activities:

We have held a Macmillan Coffee Afternoon which has been a huge success.

A representative from the NHS came to offer all staff a health check, which again had a good uptake and boosted staff morale.

We have held a Dementia Friends Awareness session open to all staff who wished to attend.

"The implementation of the Health and well being champions has been very important to us as an Academy.  The impact within our school has been overwhelmingly positive."

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. 

Obesity

People suffering from obesity could reduce their future earning power by as much as £500 per annum because qualifciations, skills and experience become outdated during long term absences from work caused by their conditions.
