OSSMA Wins Silver!

Posted on: November 19, 2020

It is with great pleasure to announce that OSSMA has been awarded a SILVER award for the DfE’s Healthy Schools Rating Scheme!

The healthy schools rating scheme has been designed by the Department for Education to recognise and encourage schools’ contributions to supporting pupils’ health and wellbeing. It celebrates the positive actions that schools are delivering in terms of healthy eating and physical activity and aims to help schools to identify useful next steps in their provision.

We have been assessed against the following key criteria:

  1. Food education, including in the curriculum and teacher training
  2. Compliance with the school food standards
  3. The amount of time children spend on PE each week
  4. Participation in active travel schemes

Schools that achieve Gold or Silver are delivering well against all aspects

Our next aim is to push for a GOLD award, so we will be working hard over the coming months to achieve this.
