Schools Excellence and Achievement Awards 2018:
2018 Excellence and Achievement awards, was again a great success and a lovely way to celerate the excellence of Swindon Schools and teachers. Each year Healthy Schools increases in the number of schools encouraging and improving health and wellbeing of the young people in Swindon. This is great to see and we would like this to continue growing.
Colebrook Primary, Covingham Park Primary, Lawn Primary and Oliver Tomkins Primary all achieved the Healthy Schools Silver Award.
Evidence shows that providing young people with positive healthy attitudes from an early age benefits and encourages healthy lifestyle choices. Therefore we have introduced the Early years award. The Swindon Healthy Early Years Programme (SHEYP), Award was pilotted by 3 early years centres: Rodbourne Cheeny Pre School, Moredon Pre school and Central Robert Le Kyng.
It was also another successful year for the Mental Health Award,3 more schools achieved this award: Haydonleigh Primary, Rodbourne Primary and Covingham Park Primary.
For the second year running Westlea Primary managed to retain their Gold Award. They have sustained the positive work they do to encourage healthy eating, increasing physical activity, improving mental health and raising attainment.
