Healthy Schools London Celebration Event: Monday 9 June 2014

Thank you to all of the schools, Healthy Schools Leads and speakers who ensured that our celebration event was a morning to remember.

The Mayor thanks London schools

Over 250 people joined together to celebrate the first year of the Mayor's Healthy Schools London programme in The Chamber at City Hall. Mayor of London, Boris Johnson kicked off the celebrations by thanking all schools and Boroughs involved in Healthy Schools London. He underlined the importance of health and wellbeing to learning and achievement at school. The Mayor then introduced a dance performance by Ravenstone Primary School, LB Wandsworth which was full of energy and enthusiasm.

Support for Healthy Schools London

The event was chaired by Deputy Mayor, Victoria Borwick who is a great advocate for the work of Healthy Schools London and was a key driver behind the broadening of the Healthy Schools London Silver and Gold Awards to include Emotional Health and Wellbeing and PSHCEE. We were fortunate to have great support on the day from experts from the fields of Education, Sport and Physical Activity, Public Health and School Food. Speakers on the day were:

  • Cllr Victoria Borwick, Londonwide Assembly Member Deputy Mayor of London
  • Prof Greg Whyte, Professor of Applied Sport & Exercise Science, Liverpool John Moores University; Director of Performance, The Centre for Health and Human Performance
  • Myles Bremner, Director of School Food Plan
  • Dr Yvonne Doyle, Regional Director, Public Health England, London
  • John Martin - Principal Bacon’s College, Southwark

We are very grateful for their support.

We currently have 1030 London schools that have registered to take part in Healthy Schools London and 377 schools have achieved a HSL Bronze Award. 38 schools have achieved a Silver Award and 2 schools have achieved a Gold Award. As we were unable to invite all of the schools that had achieved a Bronze Award to the celebration event, we produced a map detailing all of those schools. You can check if your school is taking part or has achieved a Bronze Award by going to: www.healthyschoolslondon.org.uk/get-award/schools-taking-part .
