A Word From The Directors

Dr Lincoln Sargent

Dr Lincoln Sargent

Director of Public Health, North Yorkshire County Council

“We are delighted to see so many schools from across North Yorkshire having achieved an award as part of the Healthy Schools Award programme over the past year. The fact that so many schools have continued to work on their Healthy Schools Award applications throughout the Covid-19 pandemic is also a major achievement considering the many pressures that schools have faced lately. We would like to pass on our congratulations to all of the schools and to thank them for all their hard work in helping schools to be positive environments that support the health and wellbeing of pupils and staff.”

“We are thrilled to receive the gold award as we have worked really hard to embed the principles of maintaining a healthy lifestyle across all that we do in school. Our children know that a healthy body contributes to a healthy mind. We prioritise mental health and wellbeing across the school because we acknowledge that children and staff need to feel safe and happy before they can be ready to learn and do their best.”

Leyburn Community Primary

“Staff health and well-being have been high on our agenda for several years. We know that the staff are our most important resource and so we do all that we can to support each other, both professionally and personally. This is shown through the generosity of staff who often go the extra mile to help and care for colleagues, acting as great role models for the children.”

Marwood C of E VC Infants 

Scarborough Pupil Referral Service 

As a nurture school we fully embrace the need for a healthy and balanced diet for our pupil’s so we felt that having this award embraces all the principles that are important to us and are embedded within our school ethos.  We have and will continue to explore and vary our school menu to ensure the healthiest possible selection for everyone at our school.

Brompton Community Primary School  

We are delighted with our Healthy Schools Silver award and what it represents. The wellbeing of our pupils, staff and the wider Community is at the heart of everything that we do. Achieving this award is fantastic affirmation of our commitment to developing the whole child in a safe, secure and caring environment where they can flourish and achieve their potential, whatever, that might be.  

Participating in the programme continues to sharply focus the whole school community in developing ‘healthy relationships’ in its broadest sense and all stakeholders feel more involved and invested in making our community the best it can be. Brompton Community Primary School is richer for its participation and it is lovely that this has been celebrated. We are now looking forward to our journey towards achieving the Healthy Schools Gold Award!
