Six Midlands schools win Good Care in School Award in 2021

The schools have won an award for providing great care to children and young people with type 1 diabetes. They have been chosen for the Diabetes UK ‘Good Diabetes Care in School Award 2021’ because of the support they provide to students with the condition, the help they offer to manage their diabetes safely, and the care they take to include them in all school activities. 
 

The recognition scheme aims to raise awareness of the vital role good diabetes care in school plays in keeping students safe, supporting them to achieve full academic potential and promoting their personal development. This year has been especially important in ensuring school children with type 1 diabetes are being kept safe and still receive an education. 

The winning schools are: 

  • Kates Hill Primary School and Milking Bank Primary School in Dudley.
  • Little Harrowden Community Primary School and Oakley Vale Primary School, in Northamptonshire.
  • Oak Wood Secondary School in Warwickshire.
  • Leasowes Primary School in Stafford.  

Peter Shorrick, Midlands and East Regional Head at Diabetes UK, said:

“Every child and young person with diabetes deserves to have the same opportunities as their friends at school. 

“We’re delighted to award these schools our Good Care in School Award, and congratulate the teams involved for doing a fantastic job of supporting students with type 1 diabetes throughout 2021. 

“We urge all schools across the Midlands to follow their shining example so that children and young people stay healthy and get the best from their education.”
