Phase 3 Submission Report: Guidance Notes

You must complete the appropriate report sheet for each of your 6 cards you wish to submit.

For your convenience, there is an individual report pro-forma for each card.

The statement is broken down into criteria. For each criteria please detail the evidence you have available within the school to prove that you have fulfilled the requirements of the particular aspect of health promotion.

Don’t assume that the cards with less criteria involve less work. In many cases the opposite is true.

Some sources of evidence will be repeated on different cards, this is to be expected.

Evidence comes in many different forms and formats. Some is tangible/ measurable and can be found on paper in the form of reports, statistics, plans, photos etc. This is referred to as ‘hard evidence’. There are many aspects of a school that may not be measured and quantified, for example the positive feeling within in a school and a sense of harmony. This evidence is referred to as ‘soft evidence’ and isequally as valid. You many reference both forms of evidence in your submission.

Please do not submit the evidence itself. Instead, please indicate exactly where the evidence can be found within the school on each individual report pro-forma.

There are 2 methods for accreditation:

  • The Cluster Group can be used as a panel for schools to present their evidence supporting their chosen 6 cards. The accreditation is agreed by the cluster, signed off and then sent to the Integration Manager Health and Wellbeing.A copy of the School Health Profile will be sent to the nominated person from the Community Health Partnership Improving Health Team by the Public Health Nurse.

or

  • Two headteachers from within the cluster who have been accredited as health promoting will visit the school to look at the evidence to support their claim for accreditation. The accreditation is agreed by the cluster, signed off and then sent to the Integration Manager Health and Wellbeing.A copy of the School Health Profile will be sent to the nominated person from the Community Health Partnership Improving Health Team by the Public Health Nurse.
