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.

Health, wellbeing and productivity in the workplace

In the United Kingdom during 2013–2014 an estimated 1.2 million people who worked during the last
year were suffering from an illness (long-standing as well as new cases) they believed was caused or made worse by their current or past work. Half a million of these appear to be new conditions which started during the year.
