Awards and Accreditations at Light Oaks Junior School


We are the first school in the country have been awarded the Emotionally Friendly Schools' Silver Award,and we are now an ambassador for this initiative across the Local Authority and further afield. We work hard to ensure that we look after the mental health and wellbeing of all our pupils, staff and other members of our school community and we teach children how to stay mentally fit, including teaching them the skills of resilience and grit.  We are currently working towards achieving our Gold Award by developing our social, Emotional and Mental Health offer, by supporting our staff and pupils to stay mentally healthy and by looking at how Social and Emotional Learning can be improved in school.


We also have the Gold Schools' Games Mark for PE, and enter as many sports competitions as we can across the year.  We have a reputation for being an oiutstanding sports school and we promote sport and staying active consistently throuhgout the school, ensuring that every child has the opportunity to represent school in inter-school competitions and holding many in-school sports events as well.   definitely need a bigger trophy cabinet for all the other awards and trophies we win across the year.  We were also awarded the Salford Sports Network School of theYear award for 2019
