The Healthy Schools Service provides, through its website, a single point of reference for information and updates on new programme initiatives, information on local training offers and events, useful weblinks as well as a host of resources and lesson plans to support schools embed a robust health and safety agenda.
A network of partner services, that comply with the locally agreed Quality Assurance standards, work in collaboration to provide the content which covers a wide range of topics from physical activity and healthy eating to mental health, keeping safe and relationships. The service also facilitates the delivery of multi-agency projects which are developed in response to identified needs – many of which are free of charge.
There is also the opportunity for schools to take a quick online health check which takes no longer than 15 minutes and provides the benefit of a self-assessment with sign posting to the next steps to take to help comply with the requirements of the new Health Education curriculum.
