Lichfield and Burntwood schools to receive healthy awards

Three schools in Lichfield and Burntwood are set to receive a special award to recognise their efforts to be healthy.

Saxon Hill Community Special School and Rocklands School in Lichfield will be joined by Chase Terrace Technology College at Stafford ’s County Buildings today to receive their Healthy Schools award.

The National Healthy Schools Programme recognises the achievement of schools and concentrates on four key themes – personal, social, health and economic education (PSHEE), healthy eating and drinking, physical activity and emotional health and wellbeing.

County Councillor Liz Staples, Cabinet member for Schools said:

“Congratulations to everyone involved, this is a wonderful achievement. These schools have shown that they have invested in being healthy and are dedicated to ongoing improvement and development in this area, equipping pupils with the skills and attitudes to help them make informed decisions about their health.”
