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.

Beach Games Feedback

"The beach games were amazing - the weather was horrendous, but the day was brilliant - it was a great way of getting to know colleagues from other departments, and what better way than over a game of footie!" - Jacquie Pilcher, Extra Care Coordinator, Coastline Housing Ltd

 “We have learned so much through the Cornwall Workplace Health Award Programme already, and are keen that we pass this learning on to our staff.  With many organisations already represented, we were surprised we haven’t got involved sooner as it’s so aligned to our overall ‘Wellbeing Ambition’ that working for the Environment Agency will improve health and wellbeing”
