2018-2019 Manchester Healthy schools Awards 16th october 2019

We are excited to invite you to attend our annual Health Improvement Awards Ceremony on Wednesday 16 October 2019.  

This will take place at Didsbury High School, 4 The Avenue, West Didsbury, Manchester, M20 2ET and will start at 12:30pm – 3:30pm (please arrive by 12:30pm in order to register promptly).

The aim of the awards is to recognise outstanding health promotion work undertaken by schools during the 2018-19 academic year and to recognise progress in one of our four categories (‘Working Towards’, Bronze, Silver and Gold). 

We will also be making special commendations in categories selected by our dedicated team of health improvement practitioners who have all loved working with you over the last year.

The event is open to two staff representatives from each school and is provided free of charge to Manchester schools who are engaged in the Manchester Healthy Schools’ programme.

Please reserve your school’s place by emailing Anne Pendlebury at with the names and email addresses of your two attendees. We encourage you to include a member of SLT or a governor as well as your Healthy Schools co-ordinator. At the moment we can offer two places per school but this may change as we review attendee numbers closer to the time.
