The Health and Wellbeing Service have created three online self-evaluation tools to support schools and settings to evaluate their health and wellbeing offer for children and young people:

 

School Health Check Logo

The School Health Check supports schools and settings to develop and embed the fundamental elements to achieve Healthy School Status. This online self-evaluation tool is accessed via our sister website www.healthyschools.org.uk

Through the use of the School Health Check, schools and school settings across the country, and beyond, have improved health and wellbeing outcomes for their pupils/students.

  • Over 550 schools are currently registered on our Healthy Schools website.
  • In the last 3 years we have accepted over 150 submissions to achieve self-validated Healthy Schools Status and carried out over 60 external Healthy Schools assessments

Feedback from schools is overwhelming positive:

“The School Health Check is an excellent practical tool that helped us identify strengths and next steps in order to support to the health and wellbeing of our children and young people.” (Bardsey Primary School, Leeds)

Covid-19 - Resources

Firstly may we say THANK YOU to everyone who is working hard during this time to keep children and young people happy, learning, laughing, active and calm at this time of great uncertainty!

We are keen to share tools and resources as best we can, to support children’s wellbeing and education over this period of uncertainty. With this in mind, we have produced a range of advice and free resources for schools, as well as resources for parents/carers in your school.

These resources are updated every week so please check them on a regular basis.
