Gaining and maintaining Healthy School Status in Swindon
To gain and maintain Healthy School Status, your school is asked to evidence, provisions and practice using our Annual Audit.
We have developed our Annual Audit to help you capture the essence of what it means to be a Healthy School. It is primarily intended as a tool for you to use to celebrate what’s working well and to identify areas where you might want to take some action.
Use of the Annual Audit in conjunction with your School Development Plan this will enable you to form the basis of an action plan to take forward. It will help complete the checklist to gain or maintain recognition as a Healthy School at Bronze level. .
Alongside the annual audit schools are encouraged to take part in the New three tier award system (Award Criteria) and undertake a specific, focussed piece of work addressing Public Health needs and a local need that will support the wellbeing in your school. The new reward is designed to show how schools progress and devlop health and wellbeing progressively at each level of the award.
Help from Swindon Healthy Schools
We can support you through the entire process, for example by giving you help to go through the audit and by helping you to identify effective ways to implement your action plan. We can support your Silver and Gold projects, by identifying a local or school need, using school data to show improvement and impact. Suggest resouces, tools and ideas for effective intervention and evaluation.
