St Minver School

An inclusive primary school on the Camel estuary in North Cornwall.

What we do:

St Minver School is an inclusive primary school and part of the Aspire Primary Academy Trust.  It is located on the Camel estuary in North Cornwall.

We educate primary aged children from 4 to 11 years old.

Why we became a healthy workplace:

The Aspire Academy Trust has made Health and Wellbeing central in its support of all it's staff.

As a member of the Trust we have embraced wellbeing and mindfulness to ensure all staff feel valued.

Encouraging a healthy workplace is key to creating and maintaining a healthy work life balance for the staff.

Training health and wellbeing champions has aided this process and has embedded a positive healthy approach to the workplace.

Recent health and well being activities:

* all staff were encouraged to participate in free NHS health checks

* staff encouraged to participate in physical activity eg. staff weekly fitness group, staff cycling to work, staff running half marathons etc.

* staff supported by management through bereavement, prolonged illness, etc.

*Health and wellbeing champion encouraged other staff members to become champions to develop a team.

* staff actively enrolled in weight groups and discuss their successes

We are a happy, supportive staff who feel valued by our management team.  The door is always open and we genuinely feel that St. Minver School cares about our wellbeing.

Employee Feedback

"I am lucky to work for an organisation whose management has whole-heartedly supported me throughout the process of obtaining the Healthy Workplace Awards.  The Directors have never said ‘no’ and it is great to know that my employer is interested in everyone’s well-being at work.  Not only have they approved my initiatives but they have also led by example and joined in some of them too.  They have committed, what are for us, scarce resources and agreed more flexible working policies as well as offering support to staff who may struggle with work or with personal problems through solid employment policies and management techniques"- Louise Mallas, YMCA Cornwall
