Healthy Schools Rating Scheme

The Department for Education has replaced the old Healthy School Scheme with the new Healthy School Rating

This new Healthy School Award has been added to the Sport England Active Lives Survey. As part of the Active Lives Survey teachers are required to complete an online questionnaire in which schools are questioned on four areas:

  • food education
  • school food standards
  • physical education
  • active travel.

The school's response to this survey is then assessed as part of the DfE's Healthy Schools Rating Scheme (HSRS), and a rating and certificate issued to the school.
