Rewards for getting pupils switched on to health.

SCHOOLS which promote a healthy lifestyle to their pupils have this week been rewarded for their efforts.

Staff from 20 county schools picked up a gold, silver or bronze mark as part of the Warwickshire Health Promoting School Scheme.

The ceremony was held at Shire Hall in Warwick.

A total of 52 schools from around the county now have at least one accreditation as part of the campaign which focuses on healthy eating, sport, drug education, emotional well-being, social inclusion, and alcohol and tobacco education.

Mindy Chillery, project manager at Warwickshire County Council, said: "Schools realise how important it is to give the right messages about healthy living to their students.

"Not only have a large number of schools reached the point where they are being accredited for their efforts, but they are genuinely ambitious to create healthy learning environments.

"They are staying involved with the scheme and pushing themselves to a higher level.

"I would expect that in time we see more achieving the gold mark which requires a lot of effort but is very rewarding."
