We were delighted to be awarded the Platinum Sainsbury's School Games award this summer. We are one of only two schools in North Somerset to have received this award.
To be eligible to apply for the award, you must achieve Gold level for 5 years in a row, so this was the culmination and reward for huge collective effort from the staff here at Mead Vale. We have been working really hard to put health and fitness at the forefront of our thoughts, doing everything we can to encourage our children to lead a healthy, active lifestyle ensuring that they are getting at least the government's recommendation of 60 minutes of activity every day.
Last year saw us have our highest ever number of children attending after-school sports clubs, sports coaches providing further opportunity for purposeful physical activity at lunch times, the most children we have ever had attending sports events or festivals outside of school (through either ELAN or the NSSPEA events) and we fully integrated the Daily Mile into our school day.
We have worked really hard to promote the importance of health and fitness within our school. The platinum award was a great reward for our hard work and we look forward to continuing on our positive journey.
