Today, we are focusing on the Health and Wellbeing category, sponsored by Public Health and Wellbeing.

We want to hear about schools who practise a holistic approach to a healthy lifestyle, incorporating a positive approach to exercise, nutrition and general wellbeing for students, staff and families.

If your school fits the bill, then nominate them for this award, full details below.

Last year’s Health and Wellbeing Award winners were Grange Valley Primary School who felt it was essential to raise awareness about maintaining a healthy heart, when one of their pupils was diagnosed with a heart defect. By initiating multiple fund raising activities, they succeeding in raising enough money to purchase a defibrillator for the school.

Public Health and Wellbeing are delighted to be the sponsor for the Health and Wellbeing Award Category of the St Helens Reporter’s Education Awards 2015. A spokesman said, ‘It’s a fantastic opportunity to highlight the brilliant work that our schools and colleges do to ensure the wellbeing of their staff, students and their families and show how important it is to have a healthy lifestyle and to celebrate those that go the extra mile. Schools and colleges play a big part in our children and young people’s lives so it’s vital that right from the start they learn about the benefits of healthy eating, regular exercise and that they feel happy, and that the schools and colleges promote those healthy messages throughout their students’ academic lives. We want to wish all our nominees the best of luck and we look forward to meeting them at the awards ceremony in December.’
