Gateshead Schools Health and Wellbeing Award (GSHWA) Framework 

The Gateshead Schools Health and Wellbeing Service (GSHWS) exists to support and encourage school development within the area of health and wellbeing.  In particular, the GSHWS encourages schools to develop and enhance their existing level of provision via engagement with a dedicated award framework – ‘The Gateshead Schools Health & Wellbeing Award’ (GSHWA). 

We are pleased to announce that we are currently abandoning specific application windows for this award. This means that schools can apply at any time for a GSHWA throughout the 2020 Summer term. For further details please see the full document here.

You can also access the full Award Framework Support Document here.

Gateshead Schools Health & Wellbeing Innovation Award

We’re pleased to announce this new addition to the Gateshead Schools Health & Wellbeing Award Framework.  Our Innovation Awards are designed to recognise schools who are undertaking innovative and/or in depth work within a specific area of health and wellbeing (e.g. staff wellbeing , anti-bullying, healthy eating etc.). Schools who are successful with their application will be awarded Gateshead Schools Health & Wellbeing ‘Innovation Status’. You can download a blank application by clicking here. Owing to the current situation there is no set deadline for the submission of applications.  Once complete, your application should be submitted to: CWLSchoolsHealthandWellbeing@Gateshead.Gov.UK
