Healthier pupils; better learners.

Who are we? 

Cornwall Healthy Schools are part of the Cornwall Council Wellbeing and Public Health Directorate.

We are part of the Cornwall Health Promotion Service and the Public Health Team. 

Our Vision:

Our vision is simple: to support schools throughout Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly to raise attainment and achievement by improving health and wellbeing for pupils, staff, parents and carers in the wider school community.

We aim to achieve this through working together with school staff and our partners in the council, health service, voluntary sector etc. to offer a coherent and ‘joined up’ approach to effective, evidence-based wellbeing support in the school setting using a ‘Whole School Approach’.

We offer:

  • Individual school support for staff
  • Training courses / workshops
  • Advice / information /signposting
  • Teaching resources
  • Support for specific local / national wellbeing programmes that our schools are engaged in

This wide-ranging support is available to all schools in Cornwall free of charge.
