Healthy Schools Award

Gaining Accreditation

Schools have confirmed the value that they place of a robust process of evaluation and accreditation, which supports schools to identify and improve health and well-being outcomes for pupils.

The award is a self-review audit and is renewed every three years. Throughout this process schools are supported and advised through schools visits and feedback in completing the audit and final certification.

We are able to offer accreditation to any establishment locally or beyond...
