At the Laurus Trust, we place great importance on the health and wellbeing of our staff. This month, we held our first ever Trust-wide Wellbeing Week for staff.
It was a week filled with activities and workshops for all staff across our family of schools to get involved in.
From yoga and boxing to staff breakfasts, there was something for everyone!
It was a great chance for staff to step away from their desks, take a break together and try out some new activities.
The week was thoroughly enjoyed in all of our schools, here are just some of the highlights!
One of the most popular events in each school was a free breakfast.
Staff enjoyed some tasty treats, coffees, and each other’s company – the perfect start to the day!
Health and Fitness
Staff in each school were encouraged to get active and try out some new sports.
Highlights included an afternoon of free gym access, boxing, rounders, and even line dancing!
There were also learning sessions including first aid, menopause lunches and webinars, and resilience workshops.
Staying active together
Staff across Trust schools were invited to come together for a walk in Lyme Park.
They had some wonderful weather as they took in the scenic views of the park.
Hazel Grove High School also did a group cycling tour!
Mental Health and Breathing Space
Taking the time to focus on our mental health formed a vital part of the week.
There was yoga, mindfulness colouring, freebies, and drop-in sessions with mental health first aiders.
Additionally, each school had a breathing space initiative where staff were invited to spend lunchtime together away from their offices to fully relax.
We’re grateful to be able to offer initiatives like this at such scale, and would like to say a huge thank you to our dedicated HR team who organised the week.
We hope Wellbeing Week offered everyone a chance to switch off and take some time for reflection.
Thank you to everyone who got involved and helped make it such a success!
