I went on to the Healthy Schools Beacon Celebration and Networking Event at Leeds United Conference Centre at Elland Road…

This was a truly wonderful celebration of the work going on across Leeds and allowed schools to share and learn from each other. The Healthy Schools Team had prepared a market place approach where every school had a stall so that they could present to everyone else what they were doing to promote the health and well-being agenda… and it was fantastic!

Matthew Lewis, ‘Neville Longbottom’ from the Harry Potter films, presented awards to partner organisations who had achieved the ‘ABC Quality Mark’, school nurses and teachers who had achieved the ‘PSHE Certificate’, schools who had achieved the ‘Investor in Pupils’ standard, schools who had achieved the ‘Smoke Free Schools’ standard and schools who had achieved the Leeds Advanced Healthy Schools Standard and the Leeds Healthy Schools Standard.

Anne Cowling and her colleagues did a brilliant job, and once again the session demonstrated that, as in so many areas, we are simply the best… a Beacon of excellence.
