Policy development

Governors are reponsible for ratifying policies relating to their school and the Healthy School validation process requires certain policies to be in place.

Although every school has different needs, you can find useful information on policies and guidance on formulating policies in our resources section. This section also hosts our forum where you can post queries and join in discussion on Healthy Schools issues.

In all schools, governing bodies have a duty to ensure that a healthy eating culture is fostered throughout their school and forms part of its ethos. The National Governors' Association has produced a strategic policy framework for governing bodies.
