Whole School Benefits
We believe that physical activity is vital for physical and mental wellbeing, and contributes to producing happy and healthy students. A healthy school is one that adopts a whole-school approach to health and wellbeing. It is a school that helps children flourish, learn and succeed by providing opportunities for them, and the adults around them, to develop the strengths and coping skills that underpin resilience.
A whole-school approach involves all parts of the school working together and being committed. It needs partnership working between governors, senior leaders, teachers and all school staff, as well as parents, carers and the wider community.
The ideas below are just some examples of how we may be able to support cross-curricular links and learning opportunites, and to promote physical activity and wellbeing.
