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.

Cancer Support in the Workplace - Dec 2013

Almost one person in five with cancer who was employed full time when they were diagnosed felt that their employer could have done more to understand their needs and circumstances, a poll by insurer Unum and Maggie's Cancer Caring Centres found.  Better communication was the key, it added.  ( Occupational Health, December 2013)
