We are delighted to be awarded Healthy School status after carrying out a thorough 'supported self-check' with the Healthy Schools program! This is a respected quality mark across the UK, and its processes are in line with OFSTED guidelines, so we are over the moon to receive the award! You can find out all about the Healthy Schools award at their website here, and how it helps us to ensure that our school;
- Is one that promotes physical, social, emotional and mental health and helps equip pupils, staff and families with the skills and attitudes to make informed decisions about their health.
- Is successful in supporting pupils to do their best and build on their achievements; it is committed to ongoing improvement and development.
- Recognises the importance of investing in health and wellbeing to assist in the process of raising children and young people's achievement levels.
- Involves the whole school community, parents, governors, staff and pupils in improving children's health, wellbeing and happiness, helping them to get the most out of life.
We are looking forward to inviting a member of the Healthy Schools team to visit Rhumsaa and carry our an external validation of our work in the near future - we'll let you know about that at the time.
