Whitemoor Academy

A Primary school of 100 pupils aged between 4 and 11

What we do:

A proud member of the Aspire Academy trust we are a fully inclusive primary school.

Why we became a healthy workplace:

As a small school we felt it was important that our staff could come together and work in a happy, dynamic and motivated workplace.

 

As such we are dedicated to creating a meaningful and purposeful Health and Wellbeing programme.

We believe that every individual has the right to:

Mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing.

 

Recent health and well being activities:

Our recent activities include:

A staff Zumbathon

Participating in the Santa Run

Fresh fruit Mondays

Wellbeing sessions and training offered to all staff.

Step Challenge

Shout Out Board in the staff room

Recipe of the week.

Success Story:

We are proud of all the strategies that have been put into place and believe the positive impact has been felt in our ethos and work environment.

This is evidence through our recent Gold Award.

Sickness Absence

Annually the average sickness absence is 3.5% (8 days per employee) and the average cost of absence per employee is estimated at £666.  If you employ 100 people sickness absence is costing your business £66,000 each year.  (CIPD Employee Absence, July 2008). 

Work-Based Physical activity Programmes

Work-based physical activity programmes:  A programme costing £18,900 for a company with 100 employees could lead to an overall net saving of £10,941 (Promoting physical activity in the workplace: business case).
