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 a Food in Schools 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 and mental health
- safety (including online safety, personal safety and bullying)
- healthier lifestyles
We can work with you to help build pupil voice across the school through our support for school staff around promoting school councils, and help celebrate your work via our school council awards.Read more...
Our work is needs led and focused on your key priorities for wellbeing across the whole school community. A focus on building resilience by supporting EHWB/PSHE in schools can help increase aspiration and achievement as well as help children and young people understand and manage risks linked to poor decisions around sexual health or drugs and alcohol and help them adopt healthier lives.Read more...
We are supporting the PE and School Support Strategy, 'Time to Move'. The strategy essentially focuses on the wellbeing of students and how it can be supported through the implementation of PE in the school environment.Read more...
Training and resources
Alongside training we have a wide range of resources to support your work. Our resources include ones we've developed locally which are now gaining national recognition through awards and being cited as best practice in key national wellbeing strategies. All our support for schools in offered free of charge.Read more...
To our friends in Cornwall’s Schools,
We regret to have to inform you of the sad and sudden passing of our friend and colleague Suzy Cox.
Suzy was an extremely popular member of our team, her vibrant personality will be greatly missed by us all. Her passion for the health and wellbeing of children and young people, particularly around pupil voice, has led to significant strides in our Learner Participation work and we aim to build on her efforts going forwards.
If you were a school who was working with Suzy, please could we ask that you contact us via email@example.com, so that we can continue working with you.
We are in conversation as a team as to how we best remember Suzy and how we continue to build the legacy she left behind. We will of course let you know what this is as soon as possible.
Regards and best wishes - The Cornwall Healthy Schools Team
