At the Active Westminster Awards ceremony in December 2017, George Eliot Primary School was presented with the Active School Award for 2017 for successfully achieving its Healthy School target to increase the amount of children reporting that they enjoy being physically active.
It also achieved Bronze, Silver and Gold Healthy Schools awards in only one year. The school has also organised additional training to staff to deliver active playtimes.
