About Us

Healthy Schools Award

As a Bronze accredited Healthy School, we have been recognised for the support we provide pupils and staff in leading a healthy active lifestyle, striving to improve an individuals wellbeing.

The programme plans to have the following outcomes:

  • Increased amount of opportunities that children and young people have to be physically active in and out of schools
  • Increased participation of children and young people in physical activity in and out of school
  • Improved links between schools and communities that promote physical activity
  • Increased school meal uptake including free school meals
  • Improved children and young people‚Äôs access to healthy packed lunches and snacks throughout the school day.

The benefits go beyond health.  Participating schools have also reported reduced incidence of bullying, improved behaviour and improved attendance.  Headteachers have also said that they found the Healthy Schools Programme helpful as a general school improvement tool.
