Healthy Schools Award 2014
St Michael’s have recently been awarded with the National Healthy Schools Badge.
This reflects the Government’s commitment to turn things round and put much more emphasis on measures to achieve a healthy population of young people. Schools will be at the forefront of this most ambitious change programme, and will be the first to see the successful outcomes.
The aims of the National Healthy Schools Programme:
- To support children and young people in developing healthy behaviours
- To help to raise pupil achievement
- To help to reduce health inequalities
- To help promote social inclusion
The benefits of being a ‘Healthy School’ promotes the health and wellbeing of its pupils and staff through a well planned, taught curriculum in a physical and emotional environment that promotes learning and healthy lifestyle choices. A big well done all staff who have worked hard to achieve this award for St Michael’s, especially Miss Edge.
