St Martins given Healthy Schools status

St Martins Primary School has been presented with its Guernsey Healthy Schools award.

Although the school has achieved a similar accolade in the past, this is the first time it has been given the new Guernsey award.

Lady Corder visited the school to present it during assembly on Wednesday in front of the children and teachers.

The Healthy Schools programme is designed to support and strengthen local schools' Personal Social Health and Education curriculum, while helping them celebrate the good work they are doing to support and develop young people's health and wellbeing.

In order to achieve it, schools must meet criteria in a number of areas including leadership, learning and teaching, partnerships and giving young people a voice. 

"It is wonderful to welcome Lady Corder to St Martin's Primary School and we are delighted that she [was] able to present our Health School Award," said Headteacher Cate Mason.

"The children and staff have worked hard and we are proud of what we have achieved. We have made some great improvements to our school; for instance we have re-planned our PE lessons, widened our Personal Social Health Education curriculum and improved our healthy eating policy. Thank you so much every who helped us on our way."

Lifelong Learning Manager, Alun Williams, added: "St Martin's had worked extremely hard to achieve this award. Helping young people to make healthy lifestyle choices is at the heart of school life."
