Our support for schools
Why be a healthy school?
Healthy Schools and Ofsted
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 Learner Participation 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 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 is offered free of charge.Read more...
Cornwall Healthy Schools is a health improvement programme designed to support schools to develop an ethos and environment that supports learning, promotes the health and wellbeing of all in the school community, and consults and encourages participation of all within the school community.
Being a Healthy School can contribute to improvements in wellbeing for the whole school community, and to overall school improvement - raising attainment, achievement and aspirations
The Healthy Schools Award itself is designed to have a framework that demonstrates a school is addressing each aspect of Health and Wellbeing whilst also assuring the attainability of the award for schools.
