We are absolutely thrilled that William Howard School was announced as a Golden Apple Award winner at the glittering awards evening yesterday. Mrs Mothersdale and Mrs Swan were there to be presented with the winning trophy for the Health and Wellbeing category, awarded for their innovative approach to student support during lockdown.
As well as recording weekly broadcasts on wellbeing issues and providing weekly emails for staff, the team developed an app for students which has more than 500 active users. The app promotes positive wellbeing and is a one-stop-shop to support students with their personal development.
Mrs Mothersdale said, “We are delighted to have been nominated and then to be awarded the 2021 winner of the Golden Apple Award for Health & Wellbeing. This award recognises the commitment and dedication of William Howard School staff, students and community who went above and beyond during lockdowns and throughout the pandemic to support health and wellbeing of every single person. We look forward to continuing our award winning work with our partners and our community.”
