Welcome to our Healthy Schools page.
In 2014, Becontree signed up to an awards programme set up by Healthy Schools London. This programme aims to assess how well schools prepare children towards leading healthy lifestyles- making the right food choices and staying active.
Our Healthy Schools coordinator is Miss Gaughran.
Since signing up, we have achieved a bronze award in June 2014 and a silver award in October of the same year. We continue to work towards making sure that pupils have the best and healthiest start in life. At the moment, we are working towards achieving the gold award with two long-term projects involving a vegetable garden and a new packed lunch policy.
