Gold Level Wiltshire Healthy Schools is a unique opportunity for schools to showcase their sustained commitment to the health and wellbeing of their pupils.
To qualify for Gold Level, a school must already be a Silver Level Wiltshire Healthy School.
The criteria for schools to achieve Gold Level will be clarified towards the end of 2013, when an application form will be provided.
Schools will be able to highlight their sustained involvement with other health related initiatives or quality marks. Schools can also make reference to any other health and wellbeing projects they have devised themselves in response to an identified need of children and young people (eg, setting up multi-agency drop in provision at the school, providing a school counselling service or parenting support)
Achievement at Gold Level includes:
- Accreditation from the WHS Quality Assuarance Group
- Continued use of Healthy School logo
- Invitation to a celebration event
- Dated 'Wiltshire Healthy Schools Gold Level' wall plaque
- A case study of good practice on the WHS website
As with the Bronze and Silver Levels, Gold Level Wiltshire Healthy Schools is valid for two years. To maintain Gold Level a school is required to repeat the Silver Level audit every two years.
The school will not be able to access Gold Level independently, but will be supported through the process.
