 Healthy Schools Scheme

 

Llantwit Major School has been participating in the Welsh Network of Healthy Schools Scheme (WNHSS) (part of Schools for Health in Europe) for many years. The aim of the scheme is to 'promote and protect the physical, emotional and social health and well being of children and young people in Wales'. It is recognised by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as playing a key role in promoting the health of children and young people.

 

Llantwit Major School has been awarded the National Quality Award (NQA).

 


 

The Healthy Schools Scheme expects schools to address 7 key health topics:

 

  • ü Food & Fitness
  • ü Mental & Emotional Health & Wellbeing
  • ü Personal Development & Relationships
  • ü Substance Use & Misuse
  • ü Environment
  • ü Safety
  • ü Hygiene

 

with a whole school approach in the following school aspects to address the 7 key health topics:

 

  • ü Leadership & Communication
  • ü Curriculum
  • ü Ethos & Environment
  • ü Family & Community Involvement

  

We are the only secondary school in the Vale of Glamorgan to have achieved the prestigious Healthy Schools National Quality Award.

The School received the award in 2012 and was reaccredited in 2014 and again in 2016.  

 

 

WNHSS National Quality Award

 

The National Quality Award is awarded to schools that have achieved the highest standards in all seven Healthy Schools aspects of health and well-being.

 

To achieve this award schools will have to have participated in the scheme for a minimum of nine years, and to have covered and sustained all the seven health topic areas set out in the WG “Indicators for the WNHSS National Quality Award”.

 

  

We are extremely proud to be recognised as a Healthy School.

 

 

 SNAG- School Nutrition Action Group

 

As Healthy Eating is a huge priority and focus in our school, we incorporate it both into the curriculum in home economics at ks3, 4 and 5, as well as delivering content on PSE days and Health Days. We have a SNAG that meets every other week on a Thursday in week one, first lunch. The SNAG encourage healthy eating within school and work with the canteen staff to ensure healthy food is served which meets standard requirements.
