Gold Award

Airy Hill Primary 

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!
