Under the Healthy Schools initiative, a healthy school is a safe, healthy place to learn and work. It understands that a healthy, emotionally-resilient individual will achieve, gain confidence and become a valuable member of the school community. It involves its children and young people, staff, parents/carers, and governors in making the learning environment a vibrant and exciting place. It has active links with local services that it draws on to the benefit of pupils and staff.
The Link4Life Go4it Education Programme supports schools' achievement of National Healthy School Status, contributing to the four key themes of Physical Activity; Emotional Health & Well-being; Healthy Eating; Personal, Social, Health & Economic education and progression to the Enhanced Healthy Schools programme.
Advice and assistance can be provided on achieving accreditation for Active Mark and Enhanced Healthy Schools status.
