Welcome to Swindon Healthy Schools
An amazing 96% of Swindon Schools have registered on-line to maintain their Healthy Schools Status!
41% have completed their on-line audit and have been awarded Swindon Healthy Schools status for a further 3 academic years.
Swindon Healthy School is committed to supporting all local schools, provide the best health related education, promote good health choices and recommend resources to enhance PSHE and meet the needs of the new OFSTED Health and well being of young children's framework.
"The considerable amount of time children and young people spend in school means that schools have the potential for fulfilling an important role in promoting the health and wellbeing of children and young people and laying the foundations for healthier outcomes in adulthood through school-based health programmes". From the Marmot Report, 'Fair Society, Healthy Lives' 2010, which looks at tackling health inequalities. Perhaps one of the most significant public health documents of recent times? read more about Marmot here...
In Swindon we are continuing to support schools focus on their individual health and wellbeing needs in line with locally identified health priorities. For advice and support please get in touch!
