Welcome to our updated website
Our vision is simple: to support schools throughout Cornwall & the Isles of Scilly to raise attainment & achievement by improving health & wellbeing for pupils, staff, parents & carers in the wider school community.
We aim to achieve this through working together with schools & our partners in the council, health service & voluntary sector to offer a ‘joined up’ effective, evidence-based wellbeing support using a ‘Whole School Approach’. We offer:
- Individual tailored school support
- Training courses / workshops
- Advice / information /signposting
- Teaching resources
- Support for specific local / national wellbeing programmes that our schools are engaged in.
Our support is available to all schools in Cornwall & IOS free of charge. Read more in the 2015 handbook. Whatever your school wellbeing needs are, we aim to help.

The Annual Audit is intended to help you capture the essence of what it means for your school to be a Healthy School. Primarily, it's a self-assessment checklist enabling you to celebrate what's working well and to identify areas where you might want to take some action.
It will provide excellent evidence for the new Ofsted Framework from September 2015 which is putting a greater emphasis on a whole school approach to pupil wellbeing and personal development (oh, and school food!)
