George Spicer Primary School recognised for wellbeing work

George Spicer Primary School in Enfield, London, has gained the Mayor of London's Healthy Schools London Silver and Bronze Awards in recognition of their work creating a calm space for pupils to eat, encouraging healthy eating choices and expanding their range of food.
London’s Deputy Mayor for Education and Childcare, Joanne McCartney met staff and children from each year group and observed a range of activities to support their Healthy Schools London programme. She took part in a healthy eating lesson with year 3 pupils and attended a road safety lesson with a year 4 group. She also met year 6 Healthy Schools ambassadors and accompanied the reception children at lunch. 
The Healthy Schools London programme gives Bronze, Silver and Gold awards to schools that encourage young Londoners to learn about their health and develop their motivation to make healthy choices. The Mayor is also supporting the Daily Mile – a campaign that encourages all schools to get their pupils moving every day to improve their overall fitness and wellbeing.
