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."

St. Austell Brewery won a gold award on their first year of taking part in the programme. Chrissie Knight, Occupational Health Manager for the brewery, commented, “Caring for and investing in the workforce has always been a priority at the Brewery and it is wonderful to gain recognition for the work that takes place at all levels to ensure that we remain an employer of choice for people in the South West, which is not only because of the opportunities that exist at many levels within the organisation, but also because of the support and benefits that exist for all employees”

Cancer Support in the Workplace - Dec 2013

Almost one person in five with cancer who was employed full time when they were diagnosed felt that their employer could have done more to understand their needs and circumstances, a poll by insurer Unum and Maggie's Cancer Caring Centres found.  Better communication was the key, it added.  ( Occupational Health, December 2013)
