A Charlton school has scooped an award for making its workplace as healthy as possible.

Charlton Manor Primary School on Indus Road in the Royal Borough of Greenwich has been recognised with a Healthy Workplace Charter award at commitment level.

The Workplace Charter is a self-assessment framework that recognises employers for investing in workplace health and wellbeing. It provides a series of standards for workplaces to meet in order to guide them to creating a health-enhancing workplace.

There are three categories of the Healthy Workplace Charter, awarded by the GLA (Greater London Authority), achievement, commitment, which the school received, and excellence.

Since the programme started, 86 organisations have been accredited, with over 195,000 employees benefitting.

Headteacher, Tim Baker, said: “It’s a great achievement and recognition for the way in which we provide a healthy environment for the employees. It is important that we show pupils in the school that health is important for all.”
