INVESTORS IN PEOPLE HEALTH AND WELLBEING

Woodchurch High School are proud to announce that we have been awarded the Investors in People Health & Well Being Award. This award recognises the contribution school makes in ensuring all its staff are supported and encouraged in adopting healthy lifestyles, as well as promoting the general health and well being of all staff members.

Investors in People state: The health and wellbeing agenda is much broader than just encouraging healthy eating and physical fitness. It’s no longer enough to provide free fruit and gym membership and expect this to deliver a healthy and motivated workforce. Following research with employers, Investors in People believes good health and wellbeing practices encourage improvement, rather than just minimising sickness and injury. Employers told us that they saw wellbeing as being about issues such as stress, a sense of worth, security and morale. Some organisations have realised that job satisfaction is no longer easy to provide in the current climate and are focusing on achieving employee engagement.

Achieving the award demonstrates school takes seriously the health and well being of its staff and provides job satisfaction for all its employees.
