The staff at Weatherfield Academy put huge amounts of energy into providing a fantastic health and wellbeing provision for their students. Now they have made the health and wellbeing of their staff a priority too.

Jonathan Henkes, PE co-ordinator, took a lead on the programme.  

“We organised a Pedometer Challenge and participated in the BHF Dechox, giving up all sweet treats during March.

The competitive nature of the challenges meant that they were a lot of fun. Our pedometer challenge was especially successful. We celebrated staff achievements by giving out prizes for first, second and third place."
