Wellbeing Trust of the Year
The Park Academies Trust in Swindon has been named the Wellbeing Trust of the Year at this year’s Multi Academy Trust Excellence Awards.
The awards give Trusts across the UK the opportunity to celebrate the achievements of their schools, pupils and staff and the positive impact they have on their local community.
The Awards ceremony was held in London on June 29 2023.
Benedick Ashmore-Short, CEO, The Park Academies Trust said: ”We’re so proud of the inspiring work of staff and pupils which has been instrumental in winning Wellbeing Trust of the year at this year’s Multi Academy Excellence Awards. At the Trust, we strongly believe that the wellbeing of our pupils and staff is the foundation of a brilliant education. I’m so pleased that the award will raise awareness of the importance of wellbeing in schools and the work we do to help our students to feel supported and valued.”
David Williams, Director of Inclusion, The Park Academies Trust said: ”I’m thrilled that the work we do to develop wellbeing in our schools is being recognised at such a prestigious national event. At the Trust, we promote the idea of the ‘whole child’ to encourage our pupils to develop into productive and happy individuals. It’s such an important part of education and vital in supporting all the academic study and exams.”
The judges all commended the long-term, sustainable approach of the trust, and the focus across children, families and staff. Effective working with outside agencies is making a real difference, and there is depth and substance to mental health provision.
