Staff and students at The Loyne Specialist School in Lancaster are celebrating their achievement of Lancashire Healthy Schools Flagship Status, the first school within the Lancashire authority to gain this significant award.

As a school they endeavour to provide all pupils with opportunities to develop a healthy lifestyle and gain the independence skills and learning they need to carry them through life.

Staff are delighted that the young people have been given the opportunity to demonstrate their involvement in many important learning opportunities and are proud to promote a healthy lifestyle to all their pupils across a wide range of contexts such as healthy eating, physical activities, emotional well-being and safety.

Jemma Jackson, the lead teacher for this project, said: “We are so proud of the achievement of all of our pupils and thrilled that the opportunities our school provides have been acknowledged.”
