Healthy Schools Programme
The aim of the Rochdale Healthy Schools
Programme is to improve the health and well being of children and
young people across the borough. Our schools have embraced the
programme with 99% having achieved the status and providing a
consistent, quality assured, standardised programme of health based
work for children and young people.
40% of our schools have now progressed onto
the ‘enhancement model’ which addresses local and national health
priorities for children and young people and provides evidence of
impact on the outcomes for health.
The Government has stated its continuing
commitment to Personal Social Health and Economic (PSHE) Education
and Healthy Schools as a means to improve the health and well being
of children and young people.
This is reflected in both the Education and
Health White papers.
- “Children can benefit enormously from high-quality Personal
Social Health and Economic (PSHE) Education. Good PSHE supports
individual young people to make safe and informed choices.” - The
Schools White Paper 2010
- “Within the current non-statutory personal, social and health
education (PSHE) framework, schools will provide age-appropriate
teaching on relationships and sexual health, substance misuse,
diet, physical activity and some mental health issues.” – Health
White Paper 2010
- ‘Initiatives such as Healthy Schools will also have a key
contribution to make to improving the health and wellbeing of
pupils.’ - Drugs Strategy 2010
