Healthy School’s Gold Standard Award
In July 2020 we were awarded the gold standard for the Healthy Schools Award. The healthy schools rating scheme is a self-assessment tool designed to help schools improve the health and wellbeing of their pupils, staff and whole school community. Schools are able to determine how well they are promoting whole school healthy eating, wellbeing and physical activity by completing a portfolio or evidence and will then receive a gold, silver or bronze award based on their answers and evidence. As a nurture school we were obviously delighted to receive the highest award and it complements our whole school ethos of a healthy balanced lifestyle and diet for each and every one of our pupils.
“As a nurture school we fully embrace the need for a healthy and balanced diet for our pupil’s so we felt that having this award embraces all the principles that are important to us and are embedded within our school ethos. We have and will continue to explore and vary our school menu to ensure the healthiest possible selection for everyone at our school.”
