In July 2020 Matching Green CE Primary School achieved the Foundation Status Healthy Schools Award. This achievement lasts for 3 years. After that time, we will have to reapply and evidence to the Healthy Schools team that we are still a Healthy School.
A Healthy 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.
