The Great Active Sunderland Schools Charter

The Great Active Sunderland Schools Charter was launched in September 2015 to coincide with Ofsted implementing a new Common Inspection Framework which will include for the first time a judgement on personal development, behaviour and welfare. The Charter measures a school's performance over four key areas that include Education, Sport, Physical Activity and key Community standards. Levels of achievement are measured through a Gold, Silver, Bronze and Engagement accreditation and are recognised by both the Education Leadership Board and Health and Well-Being Board. 

Our school has achieved the Gold standard of this award consecutively, since the academic year of 2017/2018. This award is recognition for our commitment to P.E., sport and healthy lifestyles.

Bronze Mental Health Charter Mark - 2022

 

Bernard Gilpin Primary School was awarded the Bronze Mental Health Charter Mark in 2022.  The Charter Mark acknowledges the work that has been completed in school to support the mental health and wellbeing of children, families and staff.  It promotes that the emotional wellbeing of children and young people is just as important as their physical health and it gives children the skills to develop the resilience to cope with issues in adulthood.  Two of the children received the award from Simon Marshall, Director of Education Services.
