A primary school is celebrating its commitment to health and wellbeing after securing a top award.
Wells Hall Primary School in Great Cornard is believed to be the first in Suffolk to achieve a gold health and wellbeing excellence award, given out by OneLife Suffolk.
It was achieved after the organisation spent time working with all year groups at the village school running workshops and promoting healthy living.
Jim Cleaver, headteacher at Wells Hall, said: “Health and wellbeing is a big part of the school and it has been great working with OneLife Suffolk.
“We believe one of our roles is to get our young people prepared for life after primary school and this has been a great way of embedding health and wellbeing habits.”
Staff also benefitted from the partnership through health checks while the school has also begun working with parents as well.
Kieran Lawler, PE specialist and learning mentor at the school, said: “All the children have really bought into the messages and have loved the sessions put on by OneLife Suffolk.
“The gold health and wellbeing excellence award is a deserved reward for their hard work and commitment.”
Madi Wright, from OneLife Suffolk, said: “It was a pleasure to come and work with Wells Hall Primary School.
“Both the pupils and staff have engaged with our service and it was inspiring to see the children each week complete their goals and retain the advice from session to session.
“The school has worked amazingly hard to be the first school in Suffolk to achieve Gold in our Health and Wellbeing Excellence Award.”
