Healthy Schools

Healthy School Award

The National Healthy Schools Programme is an exciting long-term initiative which is making a significant difference to the health and achievement of children and young people. The National Healthy Schools Programme supports the links between health, behaviour and achievement; it is about creating healthy and happy children and young people, who do better in learning and in life.

Children and young people in our Healthy School tell us that they feel healthier, happier and safer. Parents tell us that they feel more involved in their child’s health and learning and often feel better themselves.

The impact of the programme is based on a whole-school approach to physical and emotional well-being focused on four core themes:

  • Personal, Social & Health Education
  • Healthy Eating
  • Physical Activity
  • Emotional Health & Wellbeing

The whole school approach involves working with children, parents, school staff, governors and the whole school community to provide a solid foundation from which developments and improvement are embedded in a systematic way. These processes contribute to the physical and emotional development of all members of the school community.

We were thrilled to have our Healthy Schools status revalidated and would like to share the pre-recorded congratulations  message from Adrian Coggins (Head of Wellbeing and Public Health) on behalf of Essex County Council and the Essex Child and Family Wellbeing Service (see the link below).
