The Healthy Schools audit is changing

Tuesday 28th April 2015

To update our Healthy Schools audit, some of the standards will be changing during the first week of May 2015.

The standards will be updated to reflect recent guidance to schools from organisations including DfE, Ofsted and the Department of Health. Also the standards will better reflect our current local strategies and key messages to schools, particularly around emotional and mental health.

For returning schools, joining the programme next month or at a later date, you will notice some new standards and that some standards will have been deleted or merged.  

For schools currently in the process of accrediting you will not be expected to meet significantly new standards marked (from May 2015). You can simply tick those boxes for now.

Other standards may have moved or have been adjusted.

For a small number that have been moved or merged, you may need to reenter your evidence. If you need help or find that some of your evidence may have been lost please let me know. All audits have been saved in pdf form during the end of April so you can email if you need a copy of your previous evidence for reference.
