Stockton Healthy Schools Award
We are one of the first primary schools in the borough to be awarded the Stockton Healthy Schools Award, The judging panel were impressed with our commitment to supporting the health and wellbeing of both adults and children. In particular, they noted: "Physical activity across school is strong and pupils have multiple opportunities to be active across the school day. The OPAL school approach allows pupils to assess risk which they can apply outside of school in order to keep themselves safe. This approach at break and lunchtimes is having a positive impact on behaviour with swifter transition back into the classroom after break times."

The school was awarded a Bronze Healthy School award from the Department for Education for its commitment to teaching pupils about keeping healthy across the curriculum.
