The healthy schools rating scheme has been designed by the Department for Education to recognise and encourage schools’ contributions to supporting pupils’ health and wellbeing. It celebrates the positive actions that schools are delivering in terms of healthy eating and physical activity, and aims to help schools to identify useful next steps in their provision. Our submission was graded against the following key criteria: a. Food education, including in the curriculum and teacher training; b. Compliance with the school food standards; c. The amount of time children spend on PE each week; d. Participation in active travel schemes. Castle View is one of the first schools in the country to take part in this scheme and we have been awarded the Bronze award which is a fantastic achievement. As a school we have already began to plan how we can improve our provision even further to help achieve silver or gold.
Well done to all staff and students involved.
