September 2016 - All Change for Healthy Schools
We're changing the way we work with/support schools. You can find out more about the changes and why we're changing here. The key things to note are:
- The programme has been re-structured, enabling us to introduce new ways of working and a new Award.
- We're excited to tell you we have two new School Support Workers! Each SSW is allocated to a Locality, and will be lead for all schools within it.
- The Food in Schools Award will continue in it’s present format.
- The PADL School Councils Award will continue, but is being reviewed. We'll let you know when you can login and submit an application.
- If you currently hold Healthy Schools or Healthy Schools Plus status, your validation will be extended to July 2017, and you may still proudly display the logo.
School Support Workers have contacted their schools about the changes to the programme and the ways we can support you. Click here to read the letter.
