The school has been awarded the Wiltshire Healthy Schools Silver Award (achieved 2022) in recognition of our sustained commitment to the health and wellbeing of our children.  We are currently working towards Healthy Schools Gold.  Our aim is to look deeper at teaching and learning both in our school and the wider community.
