Kings Langley school tops for health
A school in Kings Langley has been recognised for its “relentless commitment” to encouraging pupils to improve their communication and behaviour.
Kings Langley School, in Love Lane, has been awarded the title Hertfordshire Healthy Schools Plus for its work on emotional health and wellbeing.
In particular, the school has been lauded for its success in improving pupil communication and activity within the community.
It was considered the school merited the award after a visit by members from the Hertfordshire Healthy Schools team.
Liz Biggs, lead adviser for health and wellbeing said: "I am absolutely delighted Kings Langley has received this award.
"This is a tremendous accolade and is testament to the relentless commitment that the school has shown to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of the whole school community.
"Kings Langley is a beacon school for its work on healthy schools and is to be congratulated for this.”
Hertfordshire Healthy Schools Plus was introduced in April last year after the Government advised a healthy school programmes should be introduced, to support and encourage healthier behaviour in children.
