Ysgol Esgob Morgan is celebrating after achieving a top award for health and wellbeing.
The school has received the National Quality Award, the highest award a school can obtain through the Welsh Network of Healthy School Schemes.
The school has demonstrated meeting all the criteria of the National Quality Award. These criteria are set out against 7 health topics: food and fitness, hygiene, the environment, safety, personal development and relationships, substance use and misuse and mental and emotional health and wellbeing. .
Schools that achieve the NQA are implementing wellbeing initiatives at the very highest standard.
The school has been involved in the healthy schools programme since 2002. The school has fostered excellent links within the community it serves. Parents and governors are enthusiastic, and health and well-being work is embedded at the school. Over the past decade there has been a positive change in behaviours and lifestyles of the school community. This is strong testimony to the overall value of the Healthy Schools Scheme and the way in which members of the wider community have engaged with it.
Tim Redgrave, head teacher of Ysgol Esgob Morgan said:
“We are delighted to add this prestigious award to our collection. It is the result of years of hard work and dedication by the fabulous team here at Esgob Morgan that make a difference to all our children. The comments in the report had us all brimming with pride as it recognises all that makes this school such a special place.”
The Welsh Network of Healthy School Schemes is delivered by Public Health Wales on behalf of the Welsh Government.
