B Cador: July 2018
We were delighted to be presented with a Bronze Award plaque in our Friday assembly today. We are one of two schools (Audlem being the other) to achieve this new award so soon. In fact we're the first two schools to do so in the Nantwich area!
So what did we do to get the award?
Mrs Rowlands, as our 'Self Care Champion' has been introducing how we can be more proactive in looking after ourselves. She shared information with parents through letters home, at our new starters transition morning, at our Sharing Afternoon and again at our parent Picnic Lunch. Thank you Mrs Rowlands.
Last week she led two assemblies: one for KS1and one for KS2, as part of our Healthy Mind and Healthy Body week organised by Miss Pitchford. Miss Pitchford has encouraged closer ties between the Doctor's Surgery in Wrenbury with the help of Becky Barber (the surgery manager)l, helping to coordinate visits for groups of children to learn key information about looking after themselves from Dr Marquis and Nurse Louise as well as a wealth of other exciting experiences to support our whole school focus on a Healthy Mind and Healthy Body.
The presentation today was made by Noreen Caldwell, on behalf of the NHS, who is promoting the Self Care Awards initiative. She was joined by Marion Andrews, who is a volunteer who listens to and promotes patient views, and Becky Barber from the Doctor's Surgery.
Noreen Caldwell has been very impressed by the school's holistic approach to 'Self Care' and how the school has involved so many people. She is writing a case study on the school's approach to promoting Self Care for the South Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group to share our great practice. We will share the link once it is presented. A huge thank you must go to Mrs Rowlands for writing our Action Plan and coordinating the actions so that we could achieve BRONZE! Silver here we come!
