Use this quick and easy health check to help you self assess and identify areas for development in your school.
Healthy Eating Self-Assessment
According to Public Health England, schools who take a ‘whole-school approach’, providing healthy meals to all students, show academic improvements at key stage 1 and 2. As part of the Healthy Schools Support Service there is also a stand-alone Healthy Eating Accreditation which schools can work towards at different levels, if they so choose. We will be supporting schools in being able to achieve this through teacher CPD, in-school workshops, lesson plans and resource provision as well as whole school approaches and parent engagement.
