Answered By: 
The Mayor

The previous National Healthy Schools Programme was discontinued in 2011. Some boroughs have retained a Local Healthy Schools Programme (LHSP).

All London schools can apply for the Mayor's Healthy Schools London Award. In order to achieve a bronze award schools must either meet the criteria for their LHSP or meet the minimum requirements for Healthy Schools London.
