St Minver School

St Minver School is part of the Aspire Academy Trust.

What we do:

St Minver School is part of the Aspire Academy Trust 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 of its 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.
