Doncaster School for the Deaf has been recognised for creating a learning environment that supports the health and wellbeing of its pupils.

Our school has been awarded the Healthy Learning, Healthy Lives Award from Doncaster Public Health, demonstrating its commitment to ensuring its pupils can live as healthy life as possible.

The organisation was assessed on its food and drink policy, physical activity opportunities and teaching, and its approach to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of children. The partnership between parents and the school was also assessed, and results showed that they were well informed.

Jane Goodman, our deputy head, said: “We’re thrilled to have achieved the Healthy Learning, Healthy Lives accreditation. The health and wellbeing of pupils is a priority for us, and we are passionate about creating a supportive learning environment where children can thrive.

“We offer pupils balanced meals, and value the importance of emotional health as well as physical. Forming strong relationships with parents is also really important for us and we’re delighted that this has been recognised.”
