Healthy High Five Award

Healthy High 5 Award


Awarding Body: Southampton City Council



Description of Award:

The Healthy High 5 Award was launched in Southampton to make it easier for schools to provide healthy and fun activities for all pupils to improve their wellbeing.


The Healthy High 5 Award has five achievable elements (stars) designed to have a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of all school pupils. For a school to achieve the full award all five stars criteria will need to be met. There are 3 levels of the award:


Bronze (working towards) - ACHIEVED

  • The school is working towards the HH5. This means they have started to make changes and improvement, but these are either not yet in all 5 stars or are not consistent.


Silver (achieving) - ACHIEVED

  • The school is making and maintaining improvements in all 5 stars and consistency of participation is high​


Gold (we're gold) - ACHIEVED 2023-24!

  • Awards are given at the end of each term after participation logs have been submitted to the HH5 team.


*The award links in with local and national education and health policies and guidance.


How does the whole school contribute to the Award?

Click on the image to find out how the whole school contributes in the five different sections to the award.


Boys enjoy taking some ownership over this subject and what activities they do for this lesson and I have seen some lovely, creative lessons take place.


You can be as imaginative as you like-so many things come under the “Physical Exercise” and “Mindfulness Minute” sections.


Did you know that swimming, forest schools and Mr.T sessions also count towards achieving your HH5 each term? Boys should also feel free to tick their log sheets in the classroom when they do something that is mindful or physical (besides your timetabled PE lessons).


"If we work together, staff and pupils, I am sure we can achieve a Silver award."
