Healthy School Award
At St Peters’ School we are focused on developing a ‘Healthy School’ for students and staff. The National Healthy Schools Programme is an exciting long-term initiative which aims to make a significant difference to the health and achievement of children and young people. The National Healthy Schools Programme supports the links between health, behaviour, resilience and achievement as identified through Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education.
The impact of the programme is based on a whole-school approach to physical and emotional well-being focused on the following core themes:
- Drugs, Alcohol and Tobacco
- Mental Wellbeing
- Healthy Eating
- Physical Activity and Fitness
- Safety and Resilience
- Relationships and Sex Education
- Emotional Wellbeing and Citizenship
The whole school approach involves working with children, parents, school staff and the whole school community to provide a solid foundation from which developments and improvements are embedded in a systematic way. These processes contribute to the physical and emotional development of all members of the school community.
