Our Healthy Schools awards

What Healthy Schools awards are, what awards you can work towards and how we’ll support you.

Our awards programme helps your school improve pupils’ health and wellbeing. It’s been developed by local health experts. 

There are three levels of awards:

  • Essential: the first level of award a school can take, it covers key health and wellbeing topics
  • Specialist: awards that focus on specific health and wellbeing needs and interventions
  • Advanced: awards that focus on specific health needs and interventions

This means you can focus on different health and wellbeing topics as your school progresses through the awards programme, depending on what your pupils need. Once you achieve an award, it’s valid for three years.
