We are so very proud to announce another 60 schools have won our Good Diabetes Care in School Award in our final round for the year. That brings the total to 229 schools from across the country who are delivering great diabetes care to students with Type 1 diabetes.
Check out all the winning schools on our Honour Wall and please share our Twitter and Facebook posts.
We know that the Award is very popular with schools and parents alike. Parents have told us how reassuring it is to know that schools everywhere are keeping students with Type 1 safe, happy and fully included. The award has given schools a massive incentive to put the right procedures in place such as Medical Conditions Policies which benefit all children with medical conditions. It has also helped spread the word about Type 1 diabetes and how it affects children and young people, bringing it to the attention of school staff, peers and the wider community.
We will be taking a break from the award in the next school year as our funding support comes to an end. But don’t worry, we are committed to making this winning initiative happen again. So please bear with us while we look for new opportunities to bring the award back to you in 2018/19.
