St Breock Primary School

Primary School

What we do:

Education

Why we became a healthy workplace:

Health and Wellbeing is at the core of all that we do. It drives our daily practice and is threaded through our school development plan. We believe it is the catalyst to successful learners.

Recent health and well being activities:

Weekly keep fit sessions for all staff.

Muscular skeletal health screenings for all staff and a programme of interventions which seek to correct any problems.

Half termly social events for all staff to build on team spirit.

Success Story:

Through our whole school ethos incorporating health and wellbeing at its core, it has had an impact on many staff members who have reflected on their own lifestyle. For example; weight loss, giving up smoking and taking up a variety of exercise in and out of school.

Staff appreciate the termly health and wellbeing questionnaire, facilitated by the health and wellbeing co-ordinator. This is analysed by SLT and actions taken as a result. Staff feel their voice is heard. For example; marking was becoming unrealistic to maintain. This was reviewed and as a result a new strategy has been and is being put into place.

Employee Feedback

"As a company BT puts the Health and Wellbeing of its employees extremely high on its list of priorities and at the Consumer Sales Call Centre in Truro we’re very pleased that our work in this area has been recognised by a gold award.  Initiatives that we’ve spearheaded as a result of our involvement in the scheme have included workshops to encourage healthy eating and stopping smoking as well as promoting the use of our on-site gym.   Working towards and achieving the Healthy Workplace Gold Award has been an extremely rewarding process.  The assessment process has provided us with a framework to recognise the actions and activities that are already in place as well as to identify areas in which additional activity could take place"- Tracey Camps, BT Consumer Sales Truro.
