STAFF at Ormiston Park Academy, which is sponsored by Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT), took part in a twilight wellbeing session, led by educational arts charity Trestle.

Trestle focuses on using drama to enhance wellbeing and are a mask and physical theatre company, with a mission to inspire creativity through participation and dialogue. Their sessions provide a unique opportunity to work on wellbeing, as well as to develop teaching and performance skills in mask, half mask and physical theatre.

The session gave staff at Ormiston Park Academy the opportunity to reflect on their personal wellbeing and think about ways to overcome any challenges they might face. It was also a chance to get creative and try something new, as well as offering a new perspective on ways to deliver a lesson.

Huw Derrick, Principal at Ormiston Park Academy, said: “Ensuring staff wellbeing is a top priority for us, so that we can continue to deliver high-quality teaching across our school.

It’s good to step outside the box when looking at ways we can further improve and expand on our CPD offer for our staff, and bringing in Trestle generated some really dynamic discussion.”
