Healthy Schools Gold Award

George Eliot Primary School has now successfully achieved our Healthy Schools London Gold Award!

To achieve a Gold Award, schools have to provide evidence that they have significantly impacted change in two distinct areas across the school. We were able to show that the work that we did here at school had a direct impact on the lifestyles and choices of the children in school by:

​Additionally, we implemented the MEND (Mind, Exercise, Nutrition, Do It!) programme with the support of MyTime Active which has contributed to our Gold Award.

We are now working towards a second Gold Award with a focus on Mental Health – watch this space!
