This action plan is for all Early Years settings including: day nurseries, playgroups, pre-schools, childminders who work on their own, childminders with assistants or childcare on domestic premises.
We are strongly recommending that school reception classes are included in a schools application for a Healthy Schools award. If your setting is based on a school site and would like to jointly submit with the school, then please get in touch with the Healthy Schools team to discuss the most appropriate application process at firstname.lastname@example.org
This action plan is to record progress and evidence towards achieving the Early Years - Active Lives theme. You are asked to write evidence for all criteria into the action plan but it is made clear in bold type when extra information is needed either written into the action plan or documents uploaded online as evidence; when you apply for a Healthy Early Years award.
Once all criteria have been achieved, please work through the Active Lives ‘Award content’ section replace with ‘below’), adding evidence where required. Finally upload your completed action plan. Then complete a short online survey, essential feedback for our funders. Your evidence will be submitted for assessment towards an award and go through the quality assurance process. We will be in touch after the award submission deadline to let you know whether your application has been successful.
One completed theme = Bronze award, two (plus Staff Wellbeing) = Silver award and all three themes = Gold award.
