The Healthy Schools Programme is endorsed by the Mayor of London and works with schools to improve children’s wellbeing through an awards programme.
Awards are for schools to recognise their achievements in supporting the health and wellbeing of their pupils. There are three levels of award:
- Bronze: is awarded to schools that complete either a Local Healthy Schools Review or the Healthy Schools London Review Tool (Bronze Award) and achieve the requirements
- Silver: in addition to holding a Bronze Award, the school will need to undertake an analysis of pupils’ needs, and identify new actions that will help pupils achieve and maintain good health and wellbeing. This should include one targeted and one school-wide action, and the school will need to make plans for how the changes will be delivered and measured. This can be done by using the Healthy Schools London Planning and Reporting Tool (Silver and Gold Awards)
- Gold: in addition to holding the Silver Award, the school will need to show the impact of the changes they have made and that these are sustainable. The school will need to show how it has engaged the wider community, and supported others to help children maintain a healthy weight , healthy lifestyle and wellbeing. This can be done by using the Healthy Schools London Planning and Reporting Tool (Silver and Gold Awards).
