About Us

Leicestershire Healthy Schools are part of Leicestershire County Council's Public Health Directorate.

Our vision:

Our vision is simple: to support schools throughout Leicestershire 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 Public Health priorities

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