Brooke Weston has been given the Healthy Schools Award after it met criteria in four different areas of school life. The scheme, which is a joint initiative between the Government and National Health Service, aims to improve student health, raise achievement and encourage social inclusion and liaison between schools and health-care professionals.
Brooke Weston demonstrated that it was hitting targets in the four key areas of personal health and social education, healthy eating, physical activity and emotional health and wellbeing. The process, which took about two years to complete was initiated by Mrs Huchet and completed by Miss Feeley and a commemorative plaque will be presented at an awards ceremony in December.
Miss Feeley said: 'It's a combination of things; healthy food in the restaurant, students getting ample time and opportunity to be active especially with extra-curricular activities. We had to prove we have a good base for emotional wellbeing so we take into consideration each child as an individual and are doing everything that we can to make them rounded individuals.'
