Briar Hill Primary School Receives Healthy School Award
Briar Hill Primary School has this week been awarded a Healthy Schools Award for its contribution to supporting pupils’ health and wellbeing.
The scheme, originally laid out by the Department for Education, allows schools to determine how well they are promoting healthy eating and physical activity by completing a self-assessment and receiving a rating based on their answers. They then receive an award for their performance, as well as further information on how they might improve their healthy living policies.
Allan Crozier, Briar Hill’s Lead for Community, PSHE and Wellbeing, said:
“We are delighted to have been recognised with a Healthy Schools Award this week. In school we see first-hand the impact that our health and wellbeing provision has on our students, and for this to be validated by an external scheme is just the icing on the cake. However, our work does not stop here, and we recognise that there is always room for improvement. We look forward to continuing to build on our current provision in the future.”
Janey Cooksley, Headteacher of Briar Hill Primary School, said:
“A huge thanks to Allan for his ongoing hard work on our wonderful health and wellbeing provision at Briar Hill. Now, more than ever, protecting the physical and mental health of our pupils is one of our greatest priorities, and to see that hard work paying off in this way is fantastic.”
