Before starting an award, please contact the team to inform them of your intention to commence HEYA@southampton.gov.uk. Please note, this is a new email address. (The HEYA paperwork currently states the old email address and will be amended in the future to reflect the new contact changes).
The Healthy Early Years Awards in Physical Activity are designed to support reflective practice, a key area for completion of the award. At bronze level you will be gathering information and views of parents and staff, assessing your current provision and developing your policy. At silver level, you will be identifying further areas for development and completing an action plan to address those areas identified at bronze level in addition to meeting silver requirements. You will be strengthening and monitoring the skills and opportunities offered in the setting and increasing your communication to parents and carers to support healthy choices for physical activity in the setting and at home.
