Leicestershire healthy schools


Parents section

Parents section

In a recent survey 93% of parents told us that they thought the Healthy Schools Programme had a positive influence on their children yet many felt they did not get enough information about how they could support it. As a result we have decided to launch a new section of our website aimed at giving parents more information around the healthy schools issues.

Here you will find details about the programme itself, ideas on how to support your child around healthy schools topics and suggestions as to how you can get involved with healthy schools work going on in schools.

As the section is new we are really keen to find out whether its helpful so if you have any comments or suggestions about how we can improve things please email healthyschools@leics.gov.uk or call us on 0116 3053197.
