As a result of completing and meeting all the criteria on the Camden and Islington Health and Wellbeing Review, The Gower School is now recognised as a Camden and Islington Healthy School, and we have also been awarded the Healthy Schools London Silver award.
A ‘Healthy School’ is one that demonstrates that an effective foundation to support pupils’ health and wellbeing is provided. This recognition lasts for three years, until December 2021.
The quality assurance process checked the review against the criteria and identified the following examples of good practice at The Gower School:
Helen Cameron, Health and Wellbeing Manager at School Improvement Service for Children, Employment and Skills, Islington Council said: “Miss Haigh has done a great job in ensuring the school meets all the relevant criteria. The completed review clearly reflects the range of activities and practices you have in place to support pupils and your school community. It is a very useful source of evidence.”
We are always reviewing our practices to ensure that we help our pupils to achieve and maintain good health and wellbeing and are working our way towards achieving The Healthy Schools London Gold Award.
