Healthy Schools Status

What is Healthy Schools status?

Public Health have developed an accreditation scheme that uses a Whole School Approach to define a comprehensive set of criteria for schools to review, monitor and improve their health and wellbeing offer.

The accreditation scheme is designed to provide schools with external verification that showcases their commitment to supporting the health and wellbeing needs of the school community.

A key part of the Whole School Approach, and central to achieving Healthy Schools Status, is the active participation of the schools Senior Leadership Team (SLT). The SLT are responsible for ensuring the whole school is committed to all seven themes within the accreditation scheme and will provide strategic oversight for targeted interventions in school.
