Milton Keynes Primary PRU Awarded Milton Keynes Health and Wellbeing Award 2017

“Adventures in Learning”

We are pleased to announce that Milton Keynes Primary PRU was officially awarded the Milton Keynes “Health and Wellbeing Award” on 20th September 2017. This follows on from being awarded “Healthy Schools” Status and becoming the first school in Milton Keynes to achieve “Asthma Friendly” Status.

The Milton Keynes Health and Wellbeing Award is for all settings who provide a service for children aged 0 - 19 years including: voluntary, private, independent and maintained providers including Children’s Centres, nurseries, schools, after schools clubs and childminders.

The aim of the Health and Wellbeing Award is to create healthy environments, which enable children, young people and their families to live healthier and happier lives. The Health and Wellbeing Award acts as a quality mark to show the setting is a health promoting environment.

 Ms Mills, Headteacher said “We work in partnership with many agencies, families and children to support all children in our school to live happier, healthier lives. We are focused on Physical Literacy and developing Positive mental health and well-being. To support this we provide an Optimal Learning Environment.

 Our Creative Curriculum engages children in deep learning, develops resilience and encourages participation in physical literacy and outdoor learning.

We are very pleased to have been awarded The Milton Keynes Health and Wellbeing Award and

will continue to build upon all the excellent progress we have achieved so far. In particular, this year, our School Improvement Development Plan focuses on developing an Optimal Outdoor Learning Environment where all children will have the opportunity to grow their own healthy and nutritional produce, explore how to use it and discover how it helps to sustain a healthy lifestyle. This is our Adventure in learning”.

 Liz Wilson, Public Health Practitioner and Healthy Young Peoples Network co-ordinator said, “Supporting Children in Healthier choices and achieving the Milton Keynes Health and Wellbeing Award is a proactive approach and such a fantastic example of good practice”.
