St Stephen Churchtown Academy

Primary School and Nursery

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 been part of the Healthy Workplace Award Programme for a year now. We have appointed two new health and wellbeing champions recently who are able to signpost staff to services as needed.

Recent health and well being activities:

In the last few months we have been providing free fruit in the staffroom to give staff a healthy boost when they need it!

We have gifted each staff member a new water bottle with a fruit compartment to encourage greater water intake during the working day.

We continue to provide support and signposting to staff as needed.

 

 

Raising the profile of Health and Wellbeing and recruiting health champions has been very positive for our academy and continues to be a priority. 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.

“When we think of young people’s health, we think of schools being a key space for engagement, for adults the workplace is a similar space”- Dr Justin Varney, Public Health England Programme Lead for Health and Work.
