The Healthy Schools Partnership, commissioned by the Tri-borough Public Health Service, is an alliance of Local Authority and health services together with a range of other agencies that work with schools.
All children and young people have a right to be healthy and to achieve at school and in life. Healthy Schools provides opportunities for enhancing emotional and physical aspects of health that will lead to improved health, reduced health inequalities, and increased social inclusion and will raise achievement for all.
Healthier children do better in learning and in life. By enabling children and young people to make positive changes to their behaviour regarding health and wellbeing, schools help them reach their full potential in terms of achievement and fulfillment. They can also encourage good habits that will benefit children and young people both now and in the future.
Healthy Schools is not just about children and young people, it is about involving the whole school community together with local services and agencies. And it is not just what happens in the curriculum but about the entire school day.
Schools can participate and gain recognition at the following levels:
• HSP Bronze Award
• HSP Silver Award
• HSP Gold Award
