Sunderland Healthy School Award

The Sunderland Healthy School Award

A positive, healthy school environment enables pupils and staff to enjoy coming to school and the wider school community to feel part of the school. These factors all contribute to children and young people maximising their potential at school.

The Sunderland Healthy Schools Award has been developed by a local multi-agency group of health, education and social care professionals to support Sunderland schools to establish a positive, healthy school environment. In addition, the award recognises the dedication of schools within the city to the health and wellbeing of their pupils, staff and local communities. Participation in the award will also support schools to prepare for Ofsted inspection as each charter has been developed in line with Ofsted guidance and physical health, mental health and emotional wellbeing are all key components of Ofsted’s common inspection framework.
