Our support for schools

Support for schools Support for schools Why be a healthy school?
Being a Healthy School can contribute to improvements in wellbeing for the whole school community, and make a contribution to overall school improvement and raise attainment, achievement and aspirations.

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.

Food
Our work on 'Food in Schools' is a strand of the wider Food and Cornwall programme, encompassing everything that surrounds food and food culture within the school environment.

Food

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.

PSHE
PSHE provides pupils with the knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes to make informed decisions about their lives.

PSHE

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.

Wellbeing
A whole school approach to wellbeing can be a powerful tool for school improvement and increased pupil attainment and achievement.

Wellbeing

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.

Physical activity
For the first time in history the lack of physical activity in our lives means that this generation of children may have a life expectancy of 5 years less than that of their parents.

Physical activity

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.

Training and resources
