St Stephen Churchtown Academy

We are a primary school and nursery for children aged 3 to 11 years old.

What we do:

We are responsible for the education and care of children aged 3-11.

Why we became a healthy workplace:

St Stephen Churchtown Academy is committed to the health and wellbeing of all our staff. As part of Aspire Multi Academy Trust, we have recently embarked on the Healthy Workplace Award Programme. We have appointed two health and wellbeing champions who are able to signpost staff to services as needed.

Recent health and well being activities:

All staff invited to receive NHS health checks which had a good uptake and boosted morale.

Mental health training - Managing stress in the workplace for all staff which was enlightening and informative.

Staff were signposted to various services and supported during sickness/stress and on their return to work.

Successful inter-school quiz evening to build hub relationships.

Health and Wellbeing boards being used and information being accessed.

Ongoing training for H&W Champions.

I am really pleased to announce that our school has recently achieved the Silver Award for Work Place Health and Wellbeing. Raising the profile of Health and Wellbeing and recruiting health champions has been very positive for our academy. It plays a vital role in helping us provide the very best education that our children deserve and supports the rapid improvements that are being made since joining Aspire..

"Within 6 months of signing up the enthusiasm and potential of how we can promote Health and Wellbeing throughout the College has taken hold and now after receiving our Bronze, 2014 is looking to be a very exciting year.  The Award programme has enabled us to look into what our staff would like to access and benefit from in the future and ultimately will help towards maintaining a happy, healthy and motivated workforce"- Rebecca Smith, Truro and Penwith College


According to insurance company AXA, stress levels in the UK have doubled over the last four years.
