La Mare High School receives Healthy Schools award
La Mare de Carteret High School will be presented with an award in this morning’s assembly.
The Guernsey Healthy Schools Award will be passed over by Lady Corder in front of students and the Vice-President of Education, Sport and Culture, Deputy Richard Graham.
This makes La Mare the first secondary school to achieve the local award, designed to support and strengthen the PSHCE curriculum and celebrate good work on supporting and developing pupil’s health and wellbeing.
In order to achieve the award, schools need to meet standards in leadership and management, policy development, learning and teaching, giving young people a voice and partnerships and support services.
Headteacher, Vicky Godley, says:
‘We are immensely proud to be recognised for this award.
‘It is of a great credit to the whole school community.
‘Health and wellbeing is a high priority in all schools and we are pleased to be able to demonstrate this hard work and curriculum offer for our students.
‘Of particular note is our enrichment offer where sport and health play a key part in ensuring healthy and happy students.’
