Healthy School Status
We are currently working with Southend Borough Council to gain the Healthy School Status.
Involvement in the Southend Healthy Schools Programme helps:
- to support children and young people in developing healthy behaviours;
- to help to raise pupil achievement;
- to help to reduce health inequalities;
- to help promote social inclusion
In order to work towards achieving Healthy School Status we are using a specific self-evaluation tool which helps us demonstrate how we are improving school life through health and wellbeing work. Completing the evaluation tool will highlight areas we need to focus on. Areas covered are personal, social and health education; physical activity and emotional health and wellbeing.
We have a health and wellbeing group comprised of governors; parents; students and staff who are working together to achieve Healthy School Status. If you or your child would like to contribute to this group please contact our Healthy Schools Coordinator, Mrs V. Jarvis, at firstname.lastname@example.org
The school nurse is available fortnightly for confidential drop in sessions with any student who needs to speak to her. Appointments are not necessary.
Time: Thursday lunchtime week B
Venue: Office next to the Hands Base
