Healthy School

Schools play a vital role in supporting the health and wellbeing of children and young people.

A Healthy School is one that adopts a ‘whole school approach’ to planning and implementing health and wellbeing improvements for the health and wellbeing of their young people and staff, in partnership with parents and the wider community.


A healthy school promotes physical and emotional health by providing accessible and relevant information for children and young people, increasing their understanding of their own health and empowering them to make informed decisions.

Children and young people flourish in a positive environment and when they are given a voice to influence whole-school decisions.

A healthy school understands the importance of investing in health to help pupils do their best, raise levels of achievement, improve standards and create healthier, happier and safer learning environments.
