Welcome to Swindon Healthy Schools

We're still here, we're local, immediately responsive to the needs of individual schools, and FREE

"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.
