The Flintshire Healthy Schools Scheme was launched in October 2000, and is a member of the Welsh Network of Healthy School Schemes. The Flintshire Healthy Schools Scheme is a co-operative project between Health and Education, which recognises that there are mutual benefits in young people’s health and attainments to be gained through a working partnership The Welsh Assembly Government accredited the scheme in March 2003.
We have been part of the scheme since the launch. We are about to be assessed for Phase 6 of the NQA (National Quality Award).
Over the years we have developed the following areas:
We have performed or provided a display at each of the Healthy Schools Celebration Events.
Last year we were thrilled to win the video competition for Learner Voice. We have also been fortunate in the past to have a Year 6 pupil selected to be a compere at the Celebration Event after a lengthy interview process.
Personal and Social Education incorporates a range of experiences to promote the personal and social well being of children and enables them to develop a sense of self-worth and relate effectively to others.
We have developed the Welsh SEALs scheme into our scheme of work. We hold a SHINE assembly every half term to celebrate individual success. Photos and examples of work are then displayed for all to see in the main foyer area.
We have a Proud Wall, VIP Club and just recently some Feel Good Mirrors have appeared around the school.
The mirrors are placed at child and adult height and have a special message posted above them.
