Our support for schools
Why be a healthy school?
Healthy Schools and Ofsted
From September 2015 the revised inspection framework will include a more detailed focus on all aspects of wellbeing and personal development in school including all aspects of food across the school.
Our support is tailored to the needs of each individual school to help you evidence your wellbeing work and celebrate your achievements by gaining a 'Healthy School' award.Read more...
We can work with you to help improve school meals and increase uptake; we offer courses / resources on cooking and growing skills in the classroom and beyond (including work with parents) and help you work towards the FFLP Awards. Our partners include community chefs, Cornwall Food Foundation, Jamie's Kitchen Garden Project and school caterers.Read more...
PSHE is a vital part of supporting resilience by helping students recognise and manage risky behaviours, and includes:
- relationships and sex education
- drug education (including alcohol, tobacco and volatile substance abuse)
- emotional health and wellbeing / mental health
- safety (internet safety / personal safety / bullying)
- healthier lifestyles
We can work with you to help build pupil voice across the school through our work with our colleagues in Cornwall Council who are developing and delivering Learn to Lead (an innovative and highly effective approach to pupil participation) and help celebrate your work via our PADL school council awards.Read more...
Our work is needs led and focused on your key priorities for wellbeing across the whole school community.
