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."
