Information for governors

Governors! Do they know what Healthy Schools is? Do they know you are Healthy School?

Governors need to be involved with this programme as they are in a privileged position to make positive changes for the whole school community. There is no doubt that we all have the wellbeing of children and young people at the  heart of our work. Gaining Healthy School Status celebrates the school's achievements in promoting this but it is an ongoing process which can continue to develop to reflect the changing needs of the school community.

Governors have a wonderful opportunity to support your school with the Healthy Schools Programme. Your school should have a person nominated to be the Healthy Schools Co-ordinator and often a governor with responsibility for Healthy Schools. Even if you do not have direct responsibility for the programme within your school, you can make a difference.

This website is packed full of useful information and ideas to support the school and everyone involved with it. We also have a forum for raising issues and discussion, so why not join in?

If you would like to know more about any aspect of Healthy Schools work please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you.
