Health and Wellbeing
Health in Schools Bronze Award January 2016
Health in Schools Silver Award November 2017
Health in Schools Gold Award September 2019
We were delighted to be awarded the Bronze Award and Silver Award for our Health and Wellbeing work across the school.
Our audit demonstrated how the processes and systems in school contribute to the promotion of ‘health and wellbeing’ through the taught curriculum, the school environment, and with parent and wider community links.
The feedback we were given identified particular strengths which included the wide range of systems to promote positive emotional health and wellbeing, our identification of students who need additional support, our well-structured system for PSHE delivery in secondary phase and promoting physical activity and active travel.
Gold Award Feedback 2019
We are delighted and proud to share that we have recently been awarded the Gold Health in Schools Award for our work in tackling mental health in school. Our feedback from South Gloucestershire Council about our award is below and we are particulary proud that so much of the work recognised is from our students. If you haven’t seen their short film on Mental Health, which formed part of our award, it is really worth a watch and is also available on the website. Getting the Gold Award is a fabulous achievement for the school; we are the first school locally to gain it and one of only a few nationally who have gained this accolade. This doesn’t mean that our work on promoting positive mental health and reducing the stigma about talking it stops here! We have lots of plans for this year and our Post 16 Mental Health Ambassadors will be leading the way. We look forward to keeping you up to date as we progress.
